A five-day In-person meeting is necessary to review the proposed strategic plan, to solidify our Board as a team, and to assign roles to Board members. To date we just have been able to meet on line. Our plan is to meet in Ecuador in the second weeks of August because 3/8 members of the board reside in Ecuador. Thus, we only need to bring the other five. Our strategic plan will be based in a establishing a business plan to create an economic self-sustaining base and not be dependent on donations. We need a kick start to make our coming together and strategic planning possible. Once we get a chance to put our head’s together for a handful of days, R&R is sure to go through growth spurt!
