Organizational Development Retreats

A retreat is an opportunity for the governing body to come together in an effort to meet the needs of its community. Each retreat is unique and structured to meet the customers' needs. Topics include: strategic planning, team building, budgetary planning, goal setting, managing change, conflict resolution, and communicating with the public and the media. This is a time to discuss issues and concerns in-depth in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
