The Convention Center
We’ve chosen to hold the Living With the Principles retreat at the Jekyll Island Convention Center for numerous reasons—the main one being that it brings us all close to Nature. Session rooms have large windows with views dunes and the ocean beyond along with doors leading out to a large patio and green space. Research has found that access to and views of Nature significantly improve student learning, particularly when focused attention is required.
The Center itself is silver-LEED certified, having taken into account the delicate coastal eco-system. Construction included locally-sourced materials such as shells, sea glass, and reclaimed pine. Additionally, the Center has direct access to the beach as well as the Town Center with it’s restaurants, cafes, shopping, and more.
