7th Annual Charles Hamilton Houston Leadership Retreat
Held annually during NBLSA's Congressional Black Caucus Weekend, the Charles Hamilton Houston Leadership Retreat (CHH) offers the opportunity for chapter leadership to meet and intimately interact with National Board Members. The purpose of the retreat is to give local chapter leaders the tools, information, and skills essential to having a successful tenure as a NBLSA leader. The retreat gives attendees an overview of national programming plans and guidelines for the year.
This year the retreat will be comprised of multiple, interactive breakout sessions covering such areas as recruitment and retention of members, fundraising, garnering corporate sponsorships and managing chapter finances. The retreat will also focus on educating attendees about the 2012-2013 NBLSA initiatives. Specifically, this portion of the retreat will focus on issues surrounding educational inequality, voter disenfranchisement, and mentorship. Moreover, CHH will devote considerable time to Professional Development, offering attendees the opportunity to participate in a resume workshop where they'll receive one-on-one feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of their resume from legal professionals.
