During the retreat, the RDCs will be taken through the on-going government programmes, polices, what is expected of them while in office and how they can help in the improvement of service delivery at the grass root level.

Uganda Police, Finance Ministry, Works Ministry, Health Ministry, Auditor General, Inspectorate of Government are among some of the institutions set to make presentations at the retreat.
