2018 Chapter Retreat

July 16, 2018July 17, 2018

Chapter Retreat: Mind, Body & Spirit Working in Sync

We have all been there…day 3 of a convention with 6 more to go and you can’t remember the last full meal you had in spite of the best efforts of the staff lounge. Your feet hurt due to managing 15,000+ steps a day. A full night’s sleep? What’s that? Up at 5 and down by midnight. This seems to be the recipe for so many professionals in our business whether hosting, planning or attending a show or convention. Life on the road can be challenging. That’s why we are bringing you a wellness theme for our annual retreat because you have made the connection that no one can take better care of you than you, whether on-site or off.

So let’s hit the reset button as we move into the last half of 2018:  Please join us for a wellness, wellbeing and deep well of knowledge day brought to us by inspiring nutrition, fitness and mindfulness coaches who will help us focus on keeping our minds, bodies and hearts healthy while we strive to do our best in order to be our best for ourselves, families, organizations and communities. We have a new urban setting for this event, a new location and a new format re-designed for interactive learning and a little disruptive thinking and fun along the way. We also have a very special and lasting community focused activity with Mural Arts Philadelphia that you really won’t want to miss. Need to earn more credits towards your CMP?  This program is well beyond the norm at 4.5, keeping the brain healthy! Click here for more details.

“I love that Mural Arts undertakes innovative, thought-provoking projects that are artistically relevant without losing its focus on key constituencies in our city.” – Kevin Basden, Mural Arts Board Member
