Verdict is in - Cross Regional Retreat is a Success
By Errol Mazursky - Executive Director
As an agile organization, ELP strives for experimenting with new programmatic ideas, new retreat formats and new ways of increasing the likelihood of partnerships and collaborations between its Fellows.
This year, ELP created its first ever cross-regional retreat which brought together the 2010 Eastern and New England Regional Networks. The retreat, which took place in Litchfield, CT, was the second of three retreats for both classes. The programmatic focus of this retreat was on increasing Fellows' capacity to use social media to increase their capacity to reach diverse constituencies, communicate with their supporters, and effectively share their stories.
"I enjoyed meeting my fellow ELP'ers. It was great to expand my network and to learn there are others in the network faced with similar issues pertaining to work and future prospects." Zena Nelson, 2010 Eastern Regional Fellow
"The opportunity to bridge new connections and refresh old ones was fantastic." Courtney Rudd, 2010 New England Fellow
Post-retreat evaluations strongly recommend that ELP continue to provide cross-regional retreats for future Fellowship Classes and we look forward to continuing the practice in 2011.
