Engaging Your Members and Nurturing Potential Leaders

This workshop will help you learn strategies for engaging your members so they feel like an important and valued part of your organization--and so you don't get burned out trying to do it all. We will also talk about the importance of recognizing talent in your members and giving them opportunities to grow into future leaders of your organization.
