Online Training "Making Meetings Work: How to Design Meetings to Energize Rather than Bore"
The Oxford County Wellness Collaborative and the Bethel Area Nonprofit Collaborative will be teaming up to host a viewing party for this online training on September 26, 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm ET @ The Gem Theatre, Bethel, Me
We can fit about 20 people in the Gem's conference room, so it’s important that you let Brendan know if you plan to attend so we can hold a space for you.
If you’re interested in the training but can’t make it on the 26th, please let Brendan know by calling 739-6222. Another viewing will be scheduled with a location to be determined.
"Collective impact involves A LOT of meetings. These meetings are often critical for building relationships, sustaining momentum, and maintaining accountability between partners. Many meetings, however, meander, lack focus, and can suck the air out of our initiatives.
In the new Forum online training Making Meetings Work, you'll learn tools and strategies to help you design meetings that energize and reach your goals, rather than waste your time (and patience.)
Training Lead: Paul Schmitz, Senior Advisor, Collective Impact Forum and CEO, Leading Inside Out
This online training will explore design factors like how to:
Clarify roles and expectations between attendees
Design your space to be engaging and accessible
Keep your goals and purpose at the center
Focus agenda on engagement, not reports and stick to schedule
Maintain commitments and accountability among partners
Learn to organize meetings that matter and that people won't want to miss. "
OCWC and BANC are sponsoring this training opportunity in an effort to boost the capacity of our partners to succeed in their work, and we’re inviting folks from various collaborative initiatives around the county, including the Western Maine Addiction Recovery Initiative, the Oxford County Resilience Project, Maine West, the Age-Friendly Community Initiative of Greater Bethel, and more!
