Recap: Fly Pinays Retreat (1.13.19)

When we retell the story and the journey of each year’s Fly Pinays, we stretch our memories of the laughter, bonds, and last-minute-panic-scramble-runs-to-the-store-to-grab-a-forgotten-item back several months.

The community planning, that’s characterized best by student and young adult leadership, starts the fall of the preceding year.  It truly takes special people to commit of themselves in their talent, treasure, and time, to produce a two-series Fly Pinays program each spring for our region.

While our first meeting was last November, we had our visioning and strategy retreat this past Sunday at Google. Shout outs to Advisor Bautista for hosting us at her home base.

Joined by pizza, salad, home-made pancit, and great company, our team spent an afternoon sharing their goals for their respective Director positions, receiving a training on fundraising, and learning the ropes of their roles from their predecessors.

Needless to say, after our calendaring session of must-dos and release dates, our 3rd Annual Fly Pinays team is off to the races!

Stay tuned, and follow our journey on IG: LEAD_Filipino
