Amplify Lead Retreat



We look forward to hosting you for the online Amplify Lead Retreat on Monday, March 8, and Tuesday, March 9, 2021! The retreat is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.. and end by 3 p.m. on both days. Every day from 12 noon – 1 p.m., we will break for lunch. On Day 1, we have a reception from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. where you will have the opportunity to network with each other.

Given pandemic-realities and other life/work commitments, we have designed the retreat to be flexible to your needs. You are welcome to bring office “co-workers” to any of the sessions, and we encourage you to take a break whenever needed to take care of yourself and others. Please let us know if you anticipate needing to be away for more than 10 minutes to care for a child, pump/breastfeed, etc., so we can adjust our schedule accordingly.

We want the retreat to be a respite from the everyday. Dress is casual. Please wear comfortable clothes that are conducive to stretch breaks and comfort. We ask that you bring your Amplify journal for personal reflection, along with your favorite pen/pencil. We do not have scheduled breaks, so snacks and beverages may be consumed at any time.

If you have any questions, please contact Alexis Kanda-Olmstead via email. She may also be reached on her cell at (603) 667-8000.
