Meetings That Rock!

Having good meetings can make a huge impact on the satisfaction members have with their coop, and can also be a powerful way of encouraging deeper involvement from all of your membership. NASCO has worked with groups across the continent for over thirty years, and has also cultivated connections with the broader cooperative and non-profit sector, and has used these connections to build excellent training materials for groups looking to improve their meetings. This packet serves as the written portion of a workshop which NASCO staff facilitate for member coops, which emphasize good practices for meeting process from setting up the agenda and encouraging attendance, to giving space for all members to speak, to keeping high quality records of the meeting for future members.
