AM Workshop: How to Effectively Run Committee Meetings

Today’s volunteers view time as a premium. They have high expectations for their involvement with you – and time spent at meetings. Join us to discover how to be the leader members can’t wait to volunteer for. You will learn strategies for leading dynamic committee meetings as well - as how to deal with all the characters at your table.

As a result of this program, you will be able to:

  • Support the development of your team.
  • Leverage the diversity of your volunteers.
  • Before the next meeting? Facilitate strategic conversations more smoothly.

If you want your volunteers to show up for your meetings eager to participate and ready to get to work, this is the session for you!


PM Workshop: Delegate So the Work Gets Done

Do you delegate work to volunteers? Do volunteers do the work they promise to do? Before the next meeting? 

If you answer "no" to any of these questions, and you are tired of wasting time at another meeting where nothing is done, it is time to polish your delegating skills.

Being a solid delegator is the key to getting the work done after the meeting is over.

Join Cynthia D'Amour, MBA to explore what it takes to delegate so others do the work - rather than fall back on you!  You'll discuss a four-step model for delegating, how to create experiences members will actually do as well as common traps to avoid.

As a result of this program, you will be able to:

  • Delegate with confidence
  • Avoid common delegation mistakes
  • Increase meeting effectiveness by having more people show up with the work they promised to do done.

If you want your volunteers to do the work promised, this is the session for you.
