Team Off-Site or Retreat Planning

Project Details

What We Need
  • A detailed agenda for the team event, including a rundown of content and activities
  • A project plan that itemizes the key steps and timelines for preparation and logistical considerations, such as travel and accommodations, catering needs, guest speakers, session content development, and materials
  • A communication plan to attendees including themes, goals, logistics and any preparation participants should consider before the event
  • A draft budget showing any known costs associated with the team event
What We Have In Place
  • Important to know:

    1. We currently have staff who work remotely in other states.
    2. We have also just added 2 new board members to the RISE board.
    3. We have been working with a consulting company to help RISE with its strategic plan for the next 3 years. In March 2022 this plan will be finalized.
    4. The founder of RISE will be stepping down in 6 months & we hope to have a new ED hired by March 2022.

    Thus, we would like to have a staff/board retreat. The budget is $10,000.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,686 , allowing us to be able to continue to build on the work that was done the last 5 years since RISE was founded!

This project is important because it will help the team and board as we plan for the future of RISE.
