As a newly elected officer or director, meetings can be challenging. This workshop will teach key concepts of Robert’s Rules so that you can make an impact from day one. Learn about the authority and role of the chair and members, four fundamental guidelines for effective meetings, what you can’t say at meetings, and what to do if you are shut down or your rights are violated.

I’ve served for five years on the Fayetteville Arkansas Public Library Board. I served at yesterday’s meeting as president for the first time. I found your Newly Elected Survival Course to be a real confidence boost! I’ve participated as a board member, and officer. But chairing the meeting was daunting. I did fine! Thanks for your good work! It was a big help!  Bret Park
