AC4C Work Retreat
The quarterly work retreat will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 28 and 29. Both days will be at Camp Dodge Midwest Counterdrug Training Center (MCTC) in Johnston. The theme of the two days will be mostly about assessment.
We are going to take a "field trip" during the afternoon of Day 1, June 28. We will do some environmental scans in the area. For those who cannot come to MCTC in person, but are joining us virtually, you can block out that time to do the field trip (scans) at home.
We'll report back the next morning what we all saw. It should be interesting! We'll talk about how to do this at the retreat before we go out, and we will provide the forms/format.
It will also be the kick-off of the Alcohol Observational Tool that you can use with your coalition this summer. This is aimed at getting data about what is happening around alcohol sales and home delivery, third party delivery, curbside pickup, and to-go cocktails.
