This year the ALI Steering Committee met in Berea, Kentucky, to familiarize themselves with the new facilities and plan ALI 2016. Dan drove in from Ohio, Tanya, from North Carolina, while Beth, Brenda, Geof and Terry flew in from Massachusetts, Texas, New York, and Oregon. With Rachel being the Berea College Archivist, she was happy to introduce the college as the new host for ALI over the next three summers. She also introduced Thom Price, the new coordinator, and Mark Nigro, who will be the lead facilitator, and who facilitated the retreat.
They planned each day’s events, including who will be leading each day’s class, and possible activities outside of class. Mark is a very talented facilitator, with a large bag of tricks, and he described the wide range of leadership topics and activities he uses, and will put together a fun filled day for everyone and give share valuable tools that help leaders be more effective at a personal level, and at a team level. ALI is very happy to have Mark be a part of our program at Berea.
