Dig Your AGO Chapter Out of the Ditch
Learn specific actions and activities that help revitalize AGO chapters, including successful recruitment strategies and ideas on how to assure regular attendance and participation in chapter activities. Other topics include ways to “reinvent” one’s chapter, how to create value for members through energized activities, and how to implement a leadership model that creates better opportunities for fellowship. The clinicians have prepared scenarios with interaction that leads to positive outcomes with interpersonal communication, alleviating situations apparent in many chapters today. Workshop participants are invited to share their own chapter concerns for discussion.
