Student Leadership Retreat

Each year the Student Leadership Team coordinates a retreat for current students, advisors and members of the Student Leadership Team to gather for a day of leadership development.

The retreat focuses on a variety of leadership skills including communication, collaboration, and teambuilding. Contact Deb Smith at dsmith@ccsnh.edu or (603) 271-6484 x4314 for more information.
