Doodle for Regional Directors Retreat, 2012-2013

posted Oct 31, 2012, 4:44 PM by SCS Administration
Hello Regional Directors,

The purpose of the Annual RD Retreat is to bring together most, if not all, of the college/university regions of the South Central Scholars to discuss the betterment of the SCS Regional Directors program. This includes but are not limited to: coming up with ideas on engaging scholars not only with SCS but their colleges and each other; goal-setting and developing strategies/methods for implementing those ideas, and building leadership skills as well as establishing relationships between the RDs. In respect of the diversity of our regions, the retreat space is open to all perspectives, opinions and advice, as well as constructive criticism from the Regional Directors or RD representatives. It is for this reason that we really hope to have each region represented at the retreat.

I have created a Doodle poll to see what dates and times works best for everyone. There are 18 dates to choose from starting from the end of December going through the end of the January. The times are in grouped in an 8-hour time slots but do not worry as the last two hours are reserved for dinner/networking and are optional. The location is still TBD but I promise that it will be a good one that is spacious and interactive enough to the environment we want to create during the retreat. I have just graduated from UCLA this past June so I know that schedules can get very hectic, but please try to fill in the Doodle the best that you can (considering that you are being given more than two months worth of notice). Although the more the merrier, we only need one person to represent your region so if you cannot attend the retreat, please make sure that another scholar from your site to represent your region. You can access the Doodle at the link below:

The deadline to fill out this Doodle is November 16, 2012, a whole month from now. We want to begin arranging transportation, confirming the location, and other details for the retreat around that time. There will be a transportation notice sent out at the end of November with a deadline for a response in December for those of you who may need transportation. Again, this retreat is mandatory for the Regional Directors and we need at least one person to represent each region. Thank you all for your time and support. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please send them my way at and I will do my best to respond.

Kind regards,
