Another iLEAD All Boards Retreat has come and gone, and it’s safe to say we had a great time. We are so blessed to have a group of amazing, dedicated board members providing leadership for our schools, which is why it’s so great to have everyone in one place for a few days.
This year’s retreat kicked off with site tours of SCVi, iLEAD Lancaster, Empower Generations, and iLEAD Encino, followed by an afternoon board meeting.
After a cocktail reception and dinner at the Odyssey restaurant overlooking San Fernando Valley, co-founders and co-CEOs Amber Raskin and Dawn Evenson had a “fireside chat” discussing the current state of the iLEAD network and major accomplishments over the past 10 years.
Saturday’s sessions included legislative updates, discussion of future iLEAD initiatives, and a keynote address by Thom Markham, founder and CEO of PBL Global.

The afternoon also included a series of breakout sessions for board members, covering everything from how to best tell the iLEAD story to making effective use of iLEAD’s online board meeting management system.
