How to Lead an Effective Meeting
If you have ever struggled or been unsure of yourself when leading a meeting or if you just want to learn meeting best practices, this is the workshop for you. New student organization leaders are especially encouraged to attend this workshop, but second-year students who missed it last year should be sure to attend so you don't miss out before you graduate!

This interactive session will focus on the four elements of effective meeting leadership:

  1. Determining Objectives
  2. Pre-Meeting Planning
  3. Meeting Execution
  4. Ensuring Post-Meeting Follow-Through

We will consider issues ranging from whether, when, where, and how to meet; the elements of an effective and informative agenda; how to engender broad participation and engaged decision-making; how to manage meeting disruptors; and how to conclude a meeting so that the participants feel that their time together was well-spent.
