Additional Information from our President
From Jenny's email dated Thursday, October 12, 2017
Firstly, on the topic of the retreat, I wanted to clarify what exactly we will be doing in the morning with our facilitator, Jackie Hogue (https://www.jhogue.ca). The retreat will start at 9:30, so plan to arrive at Oak Hammock Marsh between 9:15 and 9:30. We will be gathering in the Canvasback Boardroom in the morning and in the Theatre in the afternoon.
Jackie will lead the choir through a series of activities in the morning. This will be a time to talk, brainstorm and share ideas, concerns and suggestions together. Please come prepared to participate in the conversation! We want this to be a constructive and productive time together, so we encourage everyone to think ahead of time about what you can contribute to the discussions, including potential solutions to any issues raised. This retreat will really be an opportunity for the artistic team and the board to hear from all members in order to determine possible next steps for the choir.
In the afternoon, we will have our Annual General Membership Meeting, and then finish off the day singing together. No need to bring any of your own food. Dietary requirements are being taken into consideration and beverages will be provided. The only things we are asking you to bring are a water bottle and your own plate, cutlery and cup for lunch (to reduce our waste).
