The Educational Partnerships team had another successful annual retreat last month, held at Maymont Park in Richmond, VA. This year's theme was Get Your Groove On. The team recalled the previous fiscal year, collaborated with additional PCG staff, interacted with new members of the team, and prepped for the future. The team also had a great time kicking back and relaxing as they went bowling, took vintage themed photos in a photo booth, acquired professional headshots, and gathered to discover the recipients of this year's groovy lava lamp awards!

Throughout the two-and-a-half day event, the EP team members participated in sessions lead by EP directors, as well as PCG notables. Sessions focused on renewed team efforts and leverage expertise, within out division and throughout the company, to achieve growth.
