Thanks to those of you who have already RSVPed for the retreat next week. This is a friendly final reminder to RSVP here by tomorrow (Wednesday) COB if you plan to attend. Food orders have to be set by Thursday morning :). This email has an agenda overview and a couple new details like another hotel since the first room block is now full.
We'll start at 10am on Monday, 3/4 at the Granville Inn. Please arrive by 9:30 so we can start on time and all be on the same page. More details below on location and times.
The goals of the retreat are to discuss initial strategies for 2019-20 by discussing long-term collective objectives and to develop a better understanding and appreciation for Ohio’s C3 and C4 progressive communities.
The Granville Inn is fully booked at this point (except for suites), however, there are rooms right across the street at the Buxton Inn. Please see online or call to reserve a room. We’ll have a full agenda on Monday and program will run until 6pm. Coffee, lunch, and snacks will be provided. There will also be an event on Monday evening at Three Tigers Brewing/Mai Chau from 6:30pm-8:30pm. Even if you aren’t planning on staying the evening, please consider joining us if you’re able! Program will begin at 9am on Tuesday, March 5th and will run until 12. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Also, the State-of-the-State will be shown for those interested during lunch.
