The main topic for discussion was how to use the LUM website to better serve LUM “client”
using the LUM website. It was a productive day filled with lively discussion giving everyone a chance to give input on the benefits, drawbacks, appearance and content of the proposed “client online portal.” Small group and large group discussions resulted in many great ideas for serving clients in all of the LUM program areas.

Additionally the retreat gave the LUM staff an opportunity to learn more about each other — creating a stronger, more effective team. By the end of the day, everyone was refreshed and motivated to better serve our clients, guests, students & families.
