Leadership Retreat 2019 Recap

This June, we held our fourth annual CHAARG Leadership Retreat! It was our first *urban retreat* held in Chicago + it was so incredible to host this event right at home! The attendees even had the chance to see CHAARG HQ <3. This retreat is is put on exclusively for the leaders of CHAARG + is filled with empowering workshops, opportunities to network with other leaders, + get introduced to health + wellness brands that we love!

Women from across the country came together to connect, collaborate, + of course, sweat [shoutout to The Barre Code + Yoga 2.0] for the weekend. Overall, we had 72 representatives from our 69 CHAARG Chapters attend + the weekend was led by our team of 10 Chapter Leadership Consultants + 4 Regional Chapter Leads.

Our Retreat Mission:

1] Inspiration. We want everyone who attends our Leadership Retreat to leave with more inspiration than they came with — feeling motivated + inspired by the CHAARG mission of empowering every woman to live her happiest + healthiest life.

2] Connections. One of our biggest goals of this weekend is for women to not only network with one another, but also form lifelong connections. 

3] Learn! Of course, this is a “Leadership Retreat” + we wanted to help everyone who attended learn new skills that they can take back to their universities for the upcoming year. Women’s empowerment is so important to us + we are so grateful to be working alongside the next generation of women leaders!

A few highlights:

1] It wouldn’t be a CHAARG event without a little bit of sweat! We had so much fun during our *Sweat Crawl* in downtown Chicago at Yoga 2.0 + The Barre Code. Shoutout to Victoria Sport for these tanks!

2] #CHAARGEATS… we fueled our weekend with the most delicious meals + treats from Dos Toros, Beatrix, Pret a Manger, Sweetgreen, + Kodiak Cakes!

3] What’s your word? We asked our leaders to select a word that best describes what type of leader they want to be. This activity turned into an indescribable, vulnerable, + beautiful sharing experience.

Thank you to our retreat sponsors!

We absolutely loved fueling our weekend with these brands!
