Green Acton held its first retreat on Sunday, March 26, 2017, at the Assabet Valley Nature Preserve in Sudbury, MA. The retreat ran from 10am to 4pm and was facilitated by Sarah Bursky, a community planner who works for the National Park Service. Sarah has close to 20 years experience in capacity building for nonprofit organizations and networks, in particular in the areas of program management, conservation planning, and community engagement.
Attendees were Jim Snyder-Grant, Sue Cudmore, Lori Fassman, Debra Simes, Steve Long, Franny Osman, Sarah Bursky (facilitator), Debby Andell, Karen Herther, Sue Jick, Danny Factor, and Kim Kastens.
We spent the day identifying our top priorities and brainstorming about how to tackle our long wish list, how to engage new members and raise awareness about Green Acton in the community.
