Place: Upper Hudson Library System
Presenter: Mary Fellows, Manager of Youth and Family Services, UHLS

Meetings are a fact of work life. Meetings can advance understanding and informed decisions – or feed frustration and waste time. In “Control Is Not A Dirty Word: Effective Meeting Management,” Upper Hudson Library System presents a workshop in which you will learn how to:

o Determine when to hold a meeting
o Design a meeting to get the outcome you want
o Keep the meeting on track by managing difficult personalities, conflicts, and interruptions
o Positively influence productivity of meetings you are attending but not running

Whether you are a seasoned manager seeking to hone your skills, a rising star taking on more work or volunteer responsibilities that include chairing meetings, or a victim of painful meetings preparing to act, this workshop offers practical help.

To register, please email Mary Fellows at mary@uhls.lib.ny.us or call her at 518-437-9880 ext. 228. Registration deadline is August 18.
