Neighborhood Leadership Workshop

Do you have the necessary traits that make a successful neighborhood leader? A new Neighborhood Leadership Workshop, being offered by the Office of Neighborhood Services and Roanoke Neighborhood Advocates (RNA), has been designed specifically to assist neighborhood and civic group presidents on how to develop the know-how and confidence to effectively lead their organization, conduct successful meetings, work productively with their membership, and engage their members to be functioning and effective.

This exciting new workshop is being offered on Saturday, October 25, 2014, 9 a.m. - noon. in the Community Room of the newly renovated Main Roanoke Public Library located at 706 South Jefferson Street in downtown Roanoke.

Topics to Be Covered
The Neighborhood Leadership Workshop is a MUST for current and future neighborhood group leaders as members from the National Association of Parliamentarians will discuss:
  • How to deal with public comment, controversial issues and difficult people
  • How to engage your membership
  • How to keep within your meeting’s time constraints
  • How to maintain control at meetings and still be fair
  • How to put together a meeting that will ensure action
  • How to use Roberts Rules of Order as your parliamentary authority
