GWSC had a very exciting first retreat for our board! We spent the day together at the National Historic Park in New Bedford. It was a beautiful and comfortable space. We were also lucky to have a FANTASTIC facilitator for the day: Yani Burgos. I cannot recommend her enough! Through Yani’s guidance we begin to envision the future positive impact that Groundwork Southcoast could have on our region. We have recently added several new board members and so this was a wonderful time to get to know each other better and begin to feel more connected. We were also able to have most of our advisory committee join us for lunch which meant we had 20 people eating together and sharing in the excitement of the work we are doing! This was a great way to celebrate having been a Groundwork Trust for almost one year!
We are excited to report that we also formed our first subcommittees today, voted for a new executive committee and worked on our 1st strategic plan! We can’t wait to share more with you soon!
Maura, Executive Director of GWSC
