Career Enhancement Retreat

While we are excited to host the event in-person, we remain committed to ensuring the health and safety of Fellows and guests. As Covid-19 infection rates continue to fluctuate across the country, we are evaluating all safety precautions for the upcoming retreat.  At this time, we are working with hotel staff and vendors to provide the following:

  • ample social distancing during indoor activities
  • masks to be worn during indoor activities
  • accessible outdoor meeting/activity spaces
  • hand sanitizer
  • at-home tests for guests to be taken each morning of the retreat
  • additional technology equipment to allow for virtual participation

We will continue to provide updates regarding safety protocols as we get closer to the event. If you plan to attend in person, please note that the deadline to register and book travel is June 10th.   Please notify Ritu as soon as possible if you plan to attend the retreat in a virtual capacity.
