August is right around the corner, which means a day of relaxation with a little education and networking mixed in. Our annual GPPCMA Chapter Retreat will be held in Atlantic City on August 14-15, 2013 hosted this year by our friends at Harrah’s Atlantic City Resort and Casino. This year we are turning the focus of the Retreat directly on you, our member. The theme of our Retreat will place an emphasis on enhancing our minds, bettering our bodies, and uplifting our spirits. 


We will set the tone by working on our spirits. Join us on Wednesday afternoon, along with the staff at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel, to participate in a community service project that will directly support the Atlantic City Food Bank and Rescue Mission. We appreciate your support for this first time event. After this, we'll meet up at Harrah's Atlantic City for an opening reception.

Thursday will focus on your body and mind. For all of the early birds in the group, a sunrise yoga session will be offered to help clear your thoughts, relieve your stress, and energize you for the day. Following the yoga session, Andrea Sullivan will help feed our minds and provide us with strategies for healthy eating during challenging situations. The remainder of the day will provide us with an opportunity to discuss how we can improve our chapter, and activities that will get us on our feet, working together in the hunt for…well that would be too easy if we told you now!!!
