Leadership Skills to Facilitate an Effective and Vibrant Support Meeting
Track: Build the Future
Workshop Block 4: Sunday, October 27 – 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM
Room: Lester Young A
This workshop will review group leadership skills that PFLAG members can cultivate to improve their ability to facilitate chapter meetings, retain new members attending a meeting for the first time, and encourage connection between chapter members with similar needs. Attendees will learn several group leadership skills, gain an understanding regarding how and when to use these skills during chapter meetings, and receive experiential training opportunities during the workshop to practice the leadership skills while working in pairs and in a group format. All attendees will receive a digital copy of the workshop handout. Attendees can share the handout with their local chapter members to increase group leadership skill development.
