Information under Retreat Details

retreat sept09Well Ladies, we survived a 4.9 Earthquake, bumps, scrapes and new hotel management!
Sadly, after meeting with the Embassy Suites we will no longer be using that venue for our Retreats. But I am excited to say that I have now looked at dozens and I do mean dozens of desert properties and have narrowed it down to 2 fabulous places in the Palm Springs area. I am currently, waiting to get a final table count so we will NEVER have table issues again.
I am a big fan of resolving problems while moving forward and showing the solutions in place. That being said I want to offer everyone who attended the June Retreat a discount on September's Retreat: if you were part of a group, you may still get the same group rate in September even if the group organizer doesn't attend. All other attendees will automatically get the early bird rate as long as they book 30 days in advance. **For those who did not attend in June hurry up and register! I haven't had a chance to up-date the prices from early bird rates. Remember $50 deposit per person locks in your rate.
Hope to see everyone again, soon!
I CAN NOT wait to show you our new venue!
