Learn to Lead Formal Meetings

Does your board or organization need to know the ins and outs of how to run a formal business meeting? If so, the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities, in partnership with the M. Stanley Ryan Unit of Parliamentarians and the Parliamentary Law Club of Richmond, is offering a one-day workshop on March 5 to teach parliamentary procedures to both adults and youth.
The workshop will be held at the Pine Camp Arts and Community Center located at 4901 Old Brook Rd. It will begin with a joint session at 8:30 a.m. and then divide into two sessions, one for adults and one for youth ages11 through 17. Each group will learn the duties of officers and how to preside at meetings, followed by mock meetings. The two groups will join for a session during lunch, and the workshop will conclude at 2:30 p.m. after a graduation ceremony.
Registration is $8 for youth and $20 for adults until Feb. 25. After Feb. 25 a $2 late registration fee will be required.
For a registration form or more information, call 804-646-3677 or 804-646-3679.
