Why Are We So Good at Running Bad Meetings?

The Academy of Church Leadership is excited to announce our 2018 workshop series including Why Are We So Good at Running Bad Meetings? Seven Tips for Creating Effective, Productive, and Awesome Meetings by Trevor James.

Every week, as a nonprofit or church leader, you are forced to sit through bad meetings that suck the excitement and momentum out of you, your schedule, staff, and volunteers. Bad meetings have become such an epidemic that they are frequently described as a waste of time and God-given talent—an epidemic that if not addressed can result in lower productivity, higher turnover in staff and volunteers, and increased absenteeism.

The good news is you don’t have to be guilty of running a bad meeting. You can learn to reinvigorate your meetings and turn them into something positive and beneficial for your organization. At this workshop, you will discover practical and applicable tips that you can put into place at your very next meeting, tips such as how to determine whether a meeting is actually necessary, set clear meeting goals, deal with conflict, create engaging meeting strategies, and much more! It’s time to take back meetings and learn how to facilitate effective, productive and awesome meetings! Your team will thank you.

Lunch, workshop materials, and on-campus parking are all included with registration.

Registration is $60,

Register before July 10th to receive a reduced Registration cost of $50

50% Scholarship Available for All Individuals Affiliated with a Church!

Workshop will be held in Johnson Center, Room 325.

North Park Students & Chicago area Seminarians qualify for additional discounts
