Continued Growth Breakout II: Hosting Meetings that Matter
Speaker: Rhonda Ramsey Molina
Coalitions large and small, in communities across the country, get into the rut of hosting the same meeting month after month and struggle with getting to outcomes. For coalitions to achieve the change they are aiming for in their community, coalition meetings must be designed and facilitated to engage the membership in planning, delegating and implementing the necessary strategies outlined in the coalition strategic plan. This webinar will focus on designing and facilitating meetings that matter. The webinar will offer tools you can begin using immediately to turn your coalition meetings from turkey sandwich reporting sessions to action oriented, dynamic interactions between members that move the coalition to outcomes.
