Seven members of the Phillips Brooks House steering committee along with 11 program chairmen and selected volunteers will discuss next year's goals and possible programs for Phillips Brooks House during a retreat to Cape Cod on April 9-11.
PBH President David Blankenhorn '77 said yesterday that for the first time in the seven-year history of the retreats, the house will allocate its $60,000 budget in accordance with the priorities the PBH members set up during the retreat.
Blankenhorn said the purpose of the annual retreat is to get the house to reach a concensus on a set of principles for PBH. "It is the most important thing we do all year," Blankenhorn said.
One of the topics to be discussed at the retreat is PBH's trend away from individual programs toward more collectively oriented work. Blankenhorn said, "The individual program cures a symptom, while programs for collective change cure the reason behind it."
