Weekly Roundup: March 23, 2012

Good morning, readers! Last week we held a wonderful GROW Training Retreat in Boston – look forward to pictures soon! The last retreat of the year starts tomorrow in Washington D.C. These retreats have been great opportunities for fun, learning, and ideas-sharing about GROW, and above is a photo of one of the many discussions that took place at the retreats. Thanks so much to all those involved, students, speakers, and National Office staff alike. Have a lovely weekend!
