Greetings C2PLA Members and Supporters,
I hope this email finds you all well and rested after receiving an extra hour of sleep on Sunday. Hopefully you’ve also had a chance to turn all your clocks back an hour, and if not being an hour early is always better than being an hour late.
Speaking of time, on behalf of the 2011 C2PLA Retreat Planning Committee I would like to take this time to personally invite you to our 2011 holiday retreat. This is our fourth annual holiday retreat and our first with a theme. Join us as we “Look Forward to Our Legacy” on Friday December 9, 2011. To RSVP please visit www.tinyurl.com/c2pla-2011holidayretreat
The planning committee is working very hard to ensure you have a day full of fun, laughter, and team building as we work on our strategic plan for 2012. We also use this day to celebrate the successes of both the coalition and the individuals who contribute so much of their time and effort to keep our work sustainable. So whether you’ve been to one meeting this year, or all 36, we’d love to see you at the retreat.
New this year is our Key Actor Awards, for the first time in our coalition history members will decide on which individuals will be awarded one of 10 individual awards highlighting their contribution to the coalition. If you haven’t voted yet please do so by visiting http://tinyurl.com/c2pla-keyactorawardnominations before November 25th.
Lastly, at our October meeting we decided as a coalition to sponsor 11 youth whose lives have been impacted by HIV. On the retreat confirmation page you will be given the option to choose one of these 11 youth to sponsor with a gift. Please feel free to bring your wrapped or unwrapped gift with you to the retreat. If you aren’t able to attend the retreat but would still like to give a gift to one of these young people, please send me a message indicating this and I will make arrangements to pick up the gift from you before the 9th.
I look forward to seeing you all on December 9th.
