Chairing and Facilitating Effective Meetings

 Registration is closed for this event
Whether it is discussion at the Board table, a staff meeting, a small group discussion, or a meeting among community partners, the effectiveness of a meeting is often determined by the quality of facilitation skills of the person serving as chair.

This workshop explores:
• The role of the chairperson and the purpose of the meeting
• Facilitation skills and tools that are essential to effective meetings
• The importance of evaluating meetings in order to improve participant engagement and meeting effectiveness
Participants will come away from the session with insights into steps they can take away and use in their organizations, and in their everyday lives.
