Atlantic City Alumnae Hosts Chapter Retreat


Submitted by Teresa McGaney-Guy

 In August, Chapter President Cydnee Phoenix and First Vice President Robin Coleman led the Atlantic City Alumnae Chapter in many activities that resulted in the chapter walking away revived, full of positive energy and ready to move forward supporting the Atlantic City and surrounding communities. These activities included: team building, risk management training, line dancing, yoga and of course loads of sisterly fellowship.

These activities also allowed members to become better acquainted, broaden their understanding of each other, open walls of trust and encourage chapter members to focus on what they have in common rather than their differences.

The most important activity chapters engaged in during the retreat was a well-designed team-building activity. Improving chapter productivity was one of the most common goals of the team-building activity, which resulted in group collaboration that was enjoyed by all. The team-building activity was a powerful way to develop trust and improve motivation.

The afternoon facilitator, Angel Nix, was a big hit as she helped chapter members discover their true strength as a chapter. A woman of many talents, she walked participants through data discussions that led chapter members to discovering some positives and some challenges about the chapter.

The chapter’s own gifted dancer, Diane Epps led the line dancing activity. This was a fun and enjoyable activity that often is used to build social bonds.

The overall goal of the retreat was to assist chapter members with improving productivity and becoming beacons of light in the community. Members used the retreat to focus on how to gather information that would aid it in following its policies and procedures. Members walked away with ways to improve the chapter’s initiatives.
