***Retreat Applications are Now Closed***

Following the overwhelming success of previous annual retreats, we are thrilled to be moving forward with a 2019 retreat “Better U, Better Your CU.”

This year’s leadership retreat theme will focus on personal and professional wellness in the CU system. Taking care of physical and mental health has become a major focus, with some in our industry going as far as retaining wellness experts for the betterment of their employees. With the large amount of change in our industry right now, even the strongest employees can struggle with stress and change management. Staff who take the time to focus on wellness take fewer sick days, perform better in day to day tasks, are more resilient, and report greater job satisfaction.

We will use two half day workshops, plus guest speakers and breakout sessions over the three day/two night intensive to focus on personal wellness. Topics will include stress management, mental health, physical health and coping through times of change.

Retreat Date: May 28-30, 2019
