Event description

Description

Have you ever sat through a meeting and felt it wasn’t productive or efficient? Members spoke over each other. More tiring, the same few members that chime in at every meeting monopolized the floor while the secretary feverishly worked to record every single word. Worst of all, you chaired the meeting!

We invite board members and members who are considering board service to attend this workshop that will provide you with the knowledge, skills, and tools to chair effective meetings. You will learn how to use Robert’s Rules of Order to improve the quality and success of your board and general meetings.

You’ll learn how resolutions/motions are made, how to amend motions, how to amend an amended motion, and what to do if there is no second for a motion, and more!

You’ll get to practice managing difficult meetings and motions through some role play.
