On March 12, 2016 our CommunityGrows Advisory Board met for a day long retreat at 18 Reasons.The retreat was facilitated by Francis Thompkins of TogetherBrave. Frances helped to orient the day, lead exercises, provided transitions, check-ins and facilitated Committee conversations, tying it all together at the end of the day. Much of the morning was about reviewing our strategic plan and talking about structure and governance of the Advisory Board. Lunch was a delicious spread provided by Bi-Rite Grocery. In the afternoon we broke into three committees–Internal, Executive and External–to dive deeper into our work-plans and goal setting. It was a very productive day with lots of committee work ahead. Thank you everyone!
