For the past two years, the UVSA Gulf Coast Executive Board has hosted an annual President's Retreat to help unite our region's VSAs and provide the respective presidents with the necessary skills and knowledge to tackle the upcoming year. This year we decided to include not only VSA Presidents, but also each VSA's Intercollegiate Council Representative! Thus, President's Retreat is now... Leadership Retreat!
The retreat started Friday night, July 15 with each VSA President and ICC duo presenting on each of their respective VSAs. Saturday, July 16 started early with ice breakers and 10 workshops facilitated by each of our 5 UVSA Gulf Coast Executive Board Members, including topics such as VSA Longevity, Sponsorship, Delegation, and Google Drive. The day ended with a pool party where the members continued to bond and get to know one another. Sunday, July 17 was the end of Retreat, in which everyone had one last meal with one another before heading home.
We would like to give a special thanks to Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery for providing us Banh Mi for Saturday's lunch and to our lovely media team for capturing memorable moments!
