CAAR Retreat Personal Reflection

The CAAR Leadership retreat was a refreshing and clarifying meeting of individuals gathered to discuss the future of CAAR and reflect on the CAAR events of the year. The retreat, facilitated by Chong Moua, was initiated by ice breakers and continued with fun, creative, stimulating activities that helped attendees comfortably share their ideas about CAAR. After all the discussion and brainstorming, I felt that the key take away points from the retreat were maintaining consistent involvement and transitioning existing members into leadership roles. The retreat was a great way to evaluate the impact CAAR has on our community and CAAR hopes to continue to make changes in our communities in 2014.
