"This session was more than we had expected or hoped for. It helped set a strong foundation and jumpstart us in the right direction as a new council. Additionally, the guidance from the consultants prior to the session was valuable in helping us set the membership, charter and structure of our council. I would highly recommend it to other council groups."
