Don’t Miss Out on Planning Effective Meetings

The workshop “Meetings 101,” open to the IUP community and the general public, will be held on Tuesday, April 12, 2011, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Hadley Union Building.

Meetings can be directed or rambling, confident or halting, engaging or dull. They can inspire people to work hard or force them to tune out.

Effective meetings can animate a project; ineffective ones can scuttle it. Within any human enterprise, the ability to plan, design, and execute effective meetings is a robust, if narrowly held, skill.

This workshop will provide an overview and demonstration of the knowledge, skills, and practices needed to design, direct, and facilitate effective meetings. The workshop’s goal is to provide participants with the confidence and ability to plan and run meetings that guide people toward the realization of their projects, programs, and plans.

Workshop presentations and demonstrations will introduce important considerations for meeting planning, such as setting and structure, agenda preparation and outreach, and correspondence and meeting communications. Participants will return to their work or classroom with a greater understanding of meeting dynamics and the skills necessary to plan and facilitate productive meetings.
