SALT Talk & Tea
On December 1, 2022, the first of its kind, SALT Talk & Tea was held in the Vermeer Fireside Room in the Molenhouse Administration Building. Thirty past participants in the SALT program were in attendance as well as, members from Trinity Christian College’s Advancement Department: LyNae Schleyer, Executive Director; Jess Clevering, Director of Advancement Services; Jeremy Klyn Sr, Director of Alumni & Family Engagement; Leah Wideman, Assist. Director of Alumni & Family Engagement; Marissa Kunkel, Director of Annual Giving, Isabel Cruz, Engagement Officer; and Luis Acosta, Gift Officer.

The Roundtable Discussion served as a method to survey and obtain feedback from constituents to guide the direction for the re-launch of the SALT program in Spring 2023. Members of the advancement staff, affectionately known as, the Salt Shakers, facilitated the table discussions.   The meeting began with Trinity’s Interim President, Aaron Kuecker welcoming attendees. Participants completed a survey, followed by an hour and a half of Q&A on the following topics: membership benefits, marketing/advertising strategies, and areas of interest for future courses.
