Lunch will be a short walk to the gorgeous Wesleyan College Dining Hall (think Hogwarts from Harry Potter). Individuals will pay for their own lunch (about $7.50/person) and will have a choice of eating from the regular hot food line or getting pizza/burgers or salad bar. Shuttles will be available for those that need assistance to and from the dining hall.

After lunch, back at the Pierce Chapel, we will pass the microphone around for member groups to share their announcements.

The Afternoon Session will include two one-hour training sessions:

  1. How to Fund Projects in your watershed

  2. How to retain members, volunteers, and Board members

Everyone will be able to attend both training sessions. We will split the group in half and Group A will go to Session #1 and Group B will go to Session #2. Then we will take a break and switch training sessions. Afterwards we will have a wrap up and dismiss by 4pm.
