Effective Chapter Meetings Roundtable
Track: Interact in Roundtables
Workshop Block 3 – Saturday, October 26 – 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM
Room: Central Room (Lobby Level)
Monthly meetings are a key component to the work that PFLAG chapters do and the support they provide to communities nationwide. But how do thriving chapters balance support, education, and advocacy at their meetings in a way that grows membership and balances the needs of new and veteran members? This roundtable discussion will give you a chance to ask questions, share information, and network with others who are working to organize and plan effective chapter meetings. Bring your questions and expertise to the roundtable!
