The Jacomo Unit National Association of Parliamentarians invites you to an event that may change your life!
Do you feel like a deer in the headlights when it comes to running an effective meeting? Does the mere mention of motions and bylaws send you running for the hills? There is only one way to conduct a smooth and effective meeting - train, train, train.
"Making Meetings Work" is a workshop being offered by the Jacomo Unit of the National Association of Parliamentarians at Beacon Heights Community of Christ, 19402 E Holke Rd, Independence, Missouri on October 11th, 2014. This workshop is designed to arm you with the knowledge you need to make those meetings as painless as possible.
This workshop is for non-profit organization leaders, PTA leaders, school boards, church board members, community board members, civic leaders, and anyone who wants to learn how to run or participate in an effective meeting.
The registration deadline is October 4th. Registration fee is $30.00 which includes morning coffee, lunch, and a free copy of Robert's Rules of Order In Brief.

The program focuses on two critical areas – families and schools. It features tips, tools and incentives for parents, teachers and school health professionals to use to encourage energy balance; promote active, healthy lifestyles; and address childhood obesity.
