A Case in Point

Taking a brand approach to meeting leadership

A large national association had more than 12 different committees, each with its own priorities and volunteer leadership. Because these volunteers had varied backgrounds and skill sets, we were asked to design a program that would teach the incoming committee chairs how to run effective meetings.

A critical component of this training was its focus on ensuring that committee members were engaged and felt they were contributing back to the association in a meaningful way. Not only did we train leaders to run more effective meetings, we taught them to lead meetings that reflect the culture and principles of the association.

After tracking feedback over time, committee members reported increased productivity and satisfaction with their meetings.
