It's difficult to wrap your collective head around some concepts, and a one-time (or two-time) push is more effective and better on the nerves. Those negative policies (executive limitations) are difficult to get used to, and the momentum of a retreat helps.
We put together our core policies at a retreat. We refined the initial policies and wrote more detailed ones in subsequent sessions. When we thought we'd covered all the basics and had a document that could serve our Society, we passed the whole policies in one lump, replacing all previous policies of the Board.
