Advisory Board Retreat

This year at convention, I was so excited to be asked to part of this year's Advisory Board. It is such an honour to serve with such a wonderful group of ladies and be the voice of the demonstrators. Every year, Shelli (the co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up!)  picks out 8 ladies that are to serve on the board for the year.

I thought this was a great explanation on Shelli's blog about the retreat:
"I know we call the Advisory Board Retreat a retreat, but it really isn’t in any sense of the word! We go to the home office (so we’re not leaving the workplace), and we involve as many people as possible so our new board members can put faces with names , and we have a jam-packed, two-day agenda that begins in the morning and goes into the evening (doesn’t retreat somehow imply rest and relaxation?)."

We really did get treated like gold and it was so much fun getting to know all these amazing ladies. So, on Sunday after Founders Circle, we were flown from St. George to Salt Lake and met at the airport with this amazing Hummer Limo.

We spent all day Monday and all day Tuesday in meetings with members of the Corporate Team and staff members hearing amazing presentations and discussions.

During our two days, we got to spend over an hour on the pick line…and from the stats…we did pretty good! 🙂 I had such a blast picking orders, I really could have spend all day there. The staff I spent time with on the pick line were incredible!!!

On Monday night, we were invited to a lovely dinner at Shelli's house. The dinner was catered by Shanna (Shelli's daughter)…make sure you check out her BLOG.

When then had our "Favourite Things" time where we exchanged a bag full of our favourite things with each other. Of course the whole night was spent in our cute matching PJ's. We really had a lovely night and it was such a great way to get to know each other this way.

The last night , at the retreat was spent going out to dinner with Shelli and the Corporate Team. 

Of course there's so much more I did and learned this week at Stampin' Up!…all I can say is that spending this time with Stampin' Up! has given me a new light on their continued support of making being a demonstrator an amazing experience.

I'm so excited to serve this year!
