I have organized these summer retreats for our chapter before (2012 and in 2014), so I was happy to do it again this year. One problem to start though - I had to find a new venue within our budget for our 3-day retreat. The hotel we used previously increased their fees 50% which put it out of our budget. I was so excited to be able to secure The National Conference Center in Leesburg, VA for our retreat this summer! This place is a corporate training facility and can host any size event. We were given almost 6,000 square feet for our event!! 😃 The food on campus is excellent and the staff was friendly, helpful and quickly took care of any needs that came up. The overnight rooms are pretty basic as this site is used primarily for corporate training.
