January 26, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Online Workshop – Great City Council Meetings 2022, presented by Association of Washington Cities

In our current social climate, running meetings is more challenging than ever. This interactive videoconference workshop will give you the tools to run council meetings that are efficient, fair, and democratic, even when members disagree. Topics covered include “who’s in charge” of the meeting; what do to when members are difficult or disruptive; best practices for powerful and efficient discussions; responding to inappropriate remarks; making and amending motions; and holding effective public comment sessions.

  • List guidelines for effective discussion
  • Respond to difficult members or a difficult chair or mayor
  • Use “Point of Order” and “Appeal” correctly
  • Make and amend a motion

This webinar is for city elected officials, city managers/administrators, and city staff, as well as other public, private, and nonprofit staff with an interest in learning how to run meetings more effectively.
