Due to the Covid 19-related social restrictions and state and county guidelines for hosting large events, the Australian American Chamber of Commerce in San Francisco, will host a smaller scale, re-imagined Retreat at Summit Skywalker Ranch in Nicasio, CA in May, 2021.
The Australian Retreat will bring together like-minded Australian leaders in the Bay Area. The AACC will use this platform to discuss life and business as we navigate a Covid-19 impacted world and the first phase of the new US administration. An afternoon of round tables will be planned for our guests to focus on the economic recovery, Australian investments and planning for the “new" normal.
The 2021 Australian Retreat will be held at Summit Skywalker Ranch, located in a unique setting hidden in the magnificent hills of Nicasio in Marin county. Your guests are welcome to join the business discussions or use this opportunity to experience the Skywalker Spa.
The proposed Retreat will begin on a Friday, involves an overnight stay and will continue through Saturday afternoon. While the Ranch has 56 guest suites that can accommodate a maximum of 112 attendees, our numbers will be subject to official guidelines.
The Retreat will be May 14-15.
Saturday 15 May 2021
8.00am Morning vinyasa yoga or Docent led hike to the Observatory
From 9.00am Breakfast and Business Roundtable
We are adding in specific business-oriented round table sessions to take place Friday afternoon, tentatively 3-5:30pm. We wanted the opportunity for guests to connect with one another and to share business ideas. These forums are under development and we would welcome feedback on any topics we could add to our agenda.
(During this period, we envisaged that partners/spouses could use the spa or pool or explore the property, or if so inclined, could join the round tables)
