Leadership Retreat to focus on challenges
On Saturday, May 10th, the Beaver Island Leadership Retreat will
be held at the Peaine Township Hall, from 9:00 a.m. Until 1:00
p.m. The topic will be, Lobbying and Advocacy for Current
and Future Needs.
The purpose is three-fold: to share accomplishments since last
year; to agree on priority issues that affect most organizations
for next year; and to develop the skills we need to make our voices
heard by key officialsbefore they make decisions that will
affect this community.
There are six desired outcomes: to identify some priority issues;
to agree on which of them to focus on in the next year; to teach
individuals better advocacy and lobbying techniques to increase
their effectiveness; to agree how to work together to advocate
both locally and at the state level; to draft an advocacy game
plan to use before and during the Beaver Island/Lansing reception;
and to identify the next steps and assignments.
Those who come should bring a written list of their organizations
accomplishments to present to the group. A continental breakfast
will be available at 8:30.
