The members of the Board of Directors of the Dominican Development Group will meet on October 15, 2018, at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Tampa, FL. This meeting will follow the annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida in Punta Gorda from October 11-13, 2018. Board members who arrive early will have the opportunity to participate in that convention and to speak at area Episcopal churches about the work of the DDG on Sunday, October 14.

Two significant anniversaries will be celebrated during this period: for the Diocese of Southwest Florida, its 50th; and for the Dominican Development Group, its 20th.
