Forum Retreat Initiative 2015

Are your members looking to experience a once-in-a-lifetime Forum retreat in an exotic destination? Would an extra USD $1,000 on their return make that even sweeter?

In an effort to promote #EONation and get members connected around the world, EO Global is offering USD $1,000 to any Forum that has their retreat in any of EO’s newest, or soon to be launched chapter locations. This includes fun and exciting locations such as San Juan, Puerto Rico; Athens, Greece; Brooklyn, New York; and Wellington, New Zealand.

All the Forum needs to do to obtain the USD$1,000 is meet with the local members of that chapter, take a fun photo and submit to EO Global with a fun caption.  To be eligible, participating Forums must travel outside of their EO Area, or at least 100miles /160 kilometers from their chapter.

Please pass this info on to your members. We are accepting submissions for this contest through December 2015.  Questions?  Contact Laura Johnson, EO’s Global Membership Development Director atljohnson@eonetwork.org.
