2021 Edvance Fall Leadership Retreat

October 4th – October 5th, 2021

Announcing the Edvance Fall Leadership Retreat!

Calling all Edvance affiliate school leaders! Plan to join us on Monday, October 4 and Tuesday, October 5 for an in-person Fall Leadership Retreat at Hockley Valley Resort! Well-known, respected speaker Danielle Strickland will be with us as we gather together for worship, refreshment, and inspiration. This retreat will put significant emphasis on connection time with other school leaders. Some fun activities are included in the registration fee, or if you’re inclined toward a walk, there are lovely grounds, including a winery, to wander in. Numerous socialization areas abound where you will be able to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. There’s even a golf course for those who wish to play a round (green fees not included). Please don't miss this event. You need it. We all need it. It is time to be together!

Don’t miss out! We want to see you there!
