Thanks to Riverview Community Bank for hosting us at their operations center located at 17205 SE Mill Plain Blvd, Vancouver.

For this retreat, LCC has brought in three talented, professional facilitators, Masami Nishishiba, Ph.D., Center for Public Service, Sara Saltzberg, M.A., and Sally Eck, instructor in the Women's Studies Department at Portland State University. Please note that we are sharing your bios with the facilitators.
We are starting the day promptly at 8:00 a.m. on Friday and 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.
Class & Project Team Photos: We will be taking the class and project team photos for our annual report publication on Friday, February 3 at 4:30 p.m. This should not take longer than 25 minutes depending on how quickly teams can get together and smile! As such, please come dressed accordingly.
Self Care Activities: We would like each project team to come up with a 1-2 minute self care activity for each day to share with the class. Throughout the course of the day (i.e., Friday and Saturday) your project team may be called upon by the facilitators to lead the class in your self care activity. Some self care activity ideas include, stretching, yoga, dancing, deep breathing, shoulder massage, etc.
