CLPP and PopDev held a joint staff retreat on July 13th and 14th. The two days – full of trainings, dialogue, brainstorming, and collaboration – spanned the two towns of Amherst and Northampton. Together we inserted new life into our strategic plan, reviewed our multiple program areas, examined tools for communications and conflict management, celebrated the past, and created future visions. Summertime for CLPP and PopDev is the end of our program cycle, and it’s also the beginning of the next. Our staff retreat allowed us to begin our year with common perspective, and we’re excited about the work ahead!
