Mark your Calendar now for the
2013 FLABOTA Retreat and Board of Directors Meeting
In beautiful Cashiers, North Carolina
Thursday, October 3 – Saturday, October 5, 2013
Each October, our Board of Directors meets in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina for a
meeting and retreat with members. Enhancing communication and reassessing priorities are
among the goals of this annual weekend away from the stressful atmosphere of the workplace.
Join us for golf at High Hampton Golf Course and the Country Club of Sapphire Valley,
delicious meals with good friends and colleagues, hiking in the colorful mountains, and plenty
of time for relaxing and exploring the area. Additional activities will include sporting clay
shooting at a challenging point-to-point range, and horseback riding through the mountains
for beginners or more advanced riders. A respected real estate broker who knows the area
well will provide a private tour and reception, specifically for FLABOTA members.
Identifying and incorporating the personal strengths of individuals to achieve group goals is
another benefit of FLABOTA’S Annual Retreat. The cooperative skills gained at each retreat
improve the performance of our leadership team.
Incoming Chapter Presidents are strongly encouraged to attend, as you will be leading your
members at the local level in three short months. Your attendance at this meeting will help
ensure a smooth transition.
