POWELL, Wyo. - The Lunch Series, sponsored monthly by the Northwest College Centers for Training and Development in Cody and Powell, will focus on "Effective Meetings" Tuesday and Thursday, Nov. 17 and 19.
Tara Kupers, the University of Wyoming extension educator for community development for five counties in northwest Wyoming, will show how to make meetings as productive as possible by discussing what goes into the decision to hold a meeting and how to get the word out, plus how to create an agenda and facilitate the meeting.
The topic is pertinent to anyone who attends meetings, whether they're weekly staff meetings for their job, a church social committee or even a corporate shareholders' meeting.
Along with her current work in community development, Kupers has extensive experience in community coalition building, program evaluation and organizational sustainability. She has facilitated numerous workshops and forums on effective leadership, community change, and organizational leadership for communities, businesses and community benefit organizations. She holds a master's degree in education administration and counseling and has completed additional training in community development and organizational leadership.
The one-hour program gets underway in both communities at noon, with networking opportunities starting at 11:45 a.m. The Cody session meets Tuesday, Nov. 17, in Room 2206 of the NWC Cody Center, located in the Park County Complex. In Powell, the group convenes Thursday, Nov. 19, in the Center for Training and Development on the Northwest College West Campus.
Cost is $5 per person, which includes both the program and a lunch. Seats must be reserved at least one day prior to the event. To make a reservation for the Cody program e-mail Carri or call (307) 587-3506. To reserve a spot in Powell, e-mail or call Stacy at (307) 754-6062.
