How to run a successful [virtual] chapter meeting
In this webinar, our experts with decades of experience supporting fraternity and sorority chapters turn their focus to a new challenge: hosting efficient and effective meetings when distancing requirements are in place. Learn about the five keys to a successful meeting and how to make it happen online: Great meetings are purposeful, engaging, valid, efficient and decision-focused. Join us for this 40 minute webinar and bring your questions! To lead by example, we will keep this meeting shorter than the average webinar, but we bet you'll learn just as much as usual!
One of the suggestions we share is providing members a lot of materials in advance to make sure meetings are focused on action, not just reports. Let's have a chapter workshop, not a chapter lecture! To follow our own advice, check out this primer on virtual meetings so you can come prepared with your best questions!
