PRODUCTIVE MEETINGS ... THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE AN OXYMORON!
 
The Young Professionals Committee is hosting Martha Walker, Extension Specialist with the Virginia Cooperative Extension, to lead an interactive workshop on how to run a meeting that is both efficient and effective. This event will provide you with tips on what to do when one person is dominating the conversation, attendees are not prepared, the discussion gets off track, and more! In addition, we will discuss the dynamics of being the only young professional in a meeting.
 
At the end of the workshop, we will host a networking social with products from Lawrence Distributing.
$10 / person
