Lunch & Learn: Three tools for effective meetings

April 9, 2019 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Dr. Renee Rubin Ross, Director of the Nonprofit Management Certificate Program at CSUEB, will share three structures to create meetings that get everybody in your organization sharing ideas, participating, and moving towards investment and action.

This session will be interactive and hands-on — we’ll practice these tools ourselves and take them apart so we can understand how they work. You’ll be able to take them back to your nonprofit and use them with your staff in the near future.

Three takeaways:

• How to get everybody in your organization more engaged in meetings

• What to consider when designing effective conversations

• What are some elements of inspiring meetings?
