Facilitating Effective Meetings
Wednesday, January 16th 2019
Back by popular demand! By some estimates up to 37% of our time is spent in meetings, and up to 50% that time is 100% worthless. In a democratic setting, meeting facilitators can make or break the productivity of the discussion. With a light application of professional meeting management protocol, any meeting can be more organized and effective, while allowing a group to accomplish more in less time. At this session we’ll discuss this topic at a high-level and provide actionable intelligence for both meeting attendees and meeting leaders.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is aimed at staff, faculty and students who chair meetings as well as folks who simply attend meetings, covering the basics of organizing a meeting, facilitating discussions, making motions, voting, and record keeping.
