Last Friday, The Aspire Registry team headed to the Brooklyn Central Library in Grand Army Plaza for their second annual team retreat. The group spent the day reflecting on the past year’s accomplishments and planning how to meet their goals for this year. We believe that reflection and purposeful planning are essential components for a strong and efficient team, and The Aspire Registry team looks forward to putting their plans into practice.
