SFL Leadership Retreat: Day 2 & 3

Things have been intense for the Leadership Retreat and so I didn't have time to post about it yesterday. So here's what we've been doing.

Yesterday, we were over at the Institute for Humane Studies, where we started out by hosting a gathering of representatives from a variety of pro-liberty organizations interested in working with students such as the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the Young Americans for Liberty.

We then got to spend some one on one time with our favorite engineering professor, Dr. James W. Lark, III, a member of SFL's Board of Advisors and very experienced leader of liberty on college campuses. We started getting into more of the nuances regarding how SFL's leadership will be structured in the 2009-2010 school year, what we are trying to accomplish, and how we will evaluate our success.

Today, we visited the Charles G. Koch Foundation, a great organization where I spent the past year as a Koch Associate. We not only got to learn about Market Based Management (R), but we also started delving into outreach strategies and planning the upcoming SFL Regional Conferences and other major programs. Taking a break from so much work, we headed off to watch the Washington Nationals play against the San Francisco Giants where Randy Johnson was supposed to be playing for his 300th career win. Unfortunately, the weather ruined our plans and after eating plenty of peanuts in the rain, we decided to call it a night.

Well, time to get ready to visit Reason tomorrow and finish up some proposals to work on.
