Event Description

You asked, we answered! Please join WSU Assistant Professor Ashley Hall and her team on beautiful Whidbey Island, WA for a 3-day strategic planning retreat! Individuals or a team of up to 3 will stay at the Camp Casey Conference Center in Coupeville, WA where they will learn how to conduct a needs assessment, develop a strategic plan, and create an evaluation plan. Ample time to implement what you have learned will be provided, and by the end of the retreat, you will have a draft strategic plan to bring back to your organization! We hope to see you there.


Event Objectives
