A Compelling Conversation That Generates a Lasting Impression 
with Patricia A. Hudson, MPsSC, President of Melos Institute

Recruiting new members is so much more than “selling” a membership. The way you recruit has a direct impact on the way new members participate…and whether or not they renew. Drawing from decades of research from members across associations and generations, discover how simple changes in the recruitment conversation can make all the difference.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Examine why current approaches fail to produce desired results
  • Explore a recruitment technique that resonates across generations
  • Learn practical ways your fellow members can become successful recruiters
  • Discover how this approach can be incorporated in print and digital ways
  • Gain access to samples and templates for your immediate use
This webinar will be led by Patricia A. Hudson, MPsSc, President Melos Institute. Trish is a community psychologist with over 30 years’ experience with membership-based and non-profit organizations. Trish leads the Melos Institute, which is dedicated to finding practical solutions to address the persistent ongoing challenges facing these organizations.


Tools for More Effective Board Meetings

Date: Wednesday, January 21st, 2014
Time: 2:00 PM EST
Register here (space is limited)

While each board situation is unique, there are common challenges facing the conduct of effective nonprofit board meetings. These challenges include board size (typically 10, 12 or more), use of time, decision-making, and ability to keep members engaged and committed to the work. In this session I share a number of tools that can help boards have more effective meetings. These tools help you structure the meeting and do not require special training or facilitation skills. You can use them to improve your very next board meeting. 

I'll give you tools for improving your meetings so that you can: 

  • Conduct more efficient and effective board meetings
  • Create meetings that build broader commitment to decisions
  • Achieve broader engagement and follow-up

This webinar is led by Richard Lent. Rick received his Ph.D. from Syracuse University and held various management positions before co-founding Brownfield and Lent in 1991. Rick has since spent 25 years facilitating meetings around the world. These meetings have brought stakeholders together for planning, organizational change and societal issues. He also helps nonprofit boards redefine vision and strategy and improve their work together.

Among the organizations in which Rick has supported significant meetings are: InterAction (pandemic preparedness), UNICEF (country-wide health crisis), the WK Kellogg Foundation (strategy), and the International Federation of Red Cross (NGO partnering) as well as various civic and nonprofit groups. His new e-book, Meeting for Results Tool Kit: Make Your Meetings Work, is now available from Amazon.
