BHGHNY Board of Directors Gather for Planning Retreat

BHGHNY scholars, staff, and board members at this fall's Board retreat. On October 17, 2011, eighteen members of BHGHNY’s Board of Directors gathered for a comprehensive review of the organization’s key financial and programmatic indicators. Joined by members of BHGHNY’s senior leadership team, the planning retreat resulted in a number of important decisions regarding enrollment, expansion, program enhancement and fundraising. Hosted by BHGHNY Trustee Joseph Tarantino, the nearly day-long exercise provided important new insights into the organization’s work and the need to expand its current funding-base. More importantly, it provided all in attendance with ample evidence regarding the need for BHGHNY services and the efficacy of its program model. In recognizing that BHGHNY remains NYC’s only urban boarding school initiative and that its partnerships with Catherine McAuley High School and Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School have leveraged resources across service-sectors, the Board focused much of its attention on expansion. Additionally, specific steps were taken to create a strategic planning committee, along with the platform needed to facilitate its future efforts. The day ended with a reception and dinner hosted by BHGHNY Board Chair John Halleron, at the University Club. The Board of Directors was joined by BHGHNY scholars and staff, school leaders and other invited guests. Stay tuned…
