With the end of 2018 nearing, I would like to thank everybody who had any part in assisting the section or my team. As the end of the year approaches, I reflect on the past year as well as plan for the next.
Section W-1S Conclave 2018 was a great success, and although there was no cell-coverage, my team had some creative ideas to communicate with participants. Personally, I thought the bullhorn was fun and it was more effective than I, as well as others, thought it was going to be. Our photographer, Ryo, took some amazing photos throughout the weekend, some of which have been included in posts on our social media, but I encourage everybody to check them out whenever they can.
About a month and a half later, the Region Gathering was attended by the Key 3 youth and adults of the section. We garnered some very useful information, and we also came up with some great ideas for next year’s conclave. This weekend provided a wonderful service to our section, and it allowed us to collaborate with the rest of Area 1 as well as the region.
The next weekend, I attended and lead the inaugural W-1S Comms Team Retreat. This meeting was attended by me, team members, the chief, and the section adviser. You can read more about this weekend HERE.
After attending the Area 1 Conclave ‘Circuit’, the Western Region Gathering, and holding the first-ever Section W-1S Comms Team retreat, the team and Chris and I have come up with some exciting new ideas for next year. The first COC of 2019 is held in January, so if you have any feedback, please feel free to contact me. Also, I encourage everybody to attend W-1S Conclave 2019 and be sure to mention it in upcoming unit elections. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a happy New Year to everybody!
