  10. Our chapter is stronger and more committed than ever

NOTE 1: The WRW Board, Retreat Committee and Romance Jeopardy Committee decided to put Romance Jeopardy on hiatus for 2019. As with the Marlene Contest–or any activity we do “because we’ve always done it that way” — we recognize that it’s time to reassess whether RJ fits the needs of the current WRW community or if instead our chapter might be better served by something different, be that RJ 2.0 or a totally fresh offering.

NOTE 2: If you have an idea for a Deep Dive session, let us know by emailing us at retreat@wrwdc.com and we’ll add it to the list. Include whether or not you’d be willing to facilitate the discussion

NOTE 3: Drinks from the bar and tickets for the raffle baskets are extra, so add a little into your budget for these!
