Setting and Achieving Your Organization’s Goals-                                                                 
Tuesday, January 27, 5:00-6:30 p.m., Lerner 401                                                              POSTPONED DUE TO WINTER STORM: Stay tuned for rescheduled day and time.

A new year means new ideas, new members, and a new chance to make a difference. Successful groups are able to define what they want to accomplish and the steps they need to take to make it happen. What do you wish to accomplish this year? How much money would you like to raise for your philanthropy? What are your short term goals? Long term goals? Let us help you get your action plan started.

Effectively Delegate Within Your Student Group
Wednesday, February 11, 5:00-6:30 p.m., Lerner 401

One of the biggest struggles within student organizations is properly and efficiently delegating tasks and responsibilities to members within the organization. This workshop focuses on building effective delegation skills. Explore both the objections and benefits to delegation, and then focus on concrete processes that will allow you to become more comfortable with delegation by learning when, who, and how to delegate.

Successfully Transition Your New Leadership
Tuesday, February 24, 5:00-6:30 p.m., Lerner 403

How do you leave your position gracefully? How do you ensure that the new officers are ready to continue to provide your organization with strong leadership? Be the type of leader that leaves your organization stronger, better, and adequately prepared to take your organization to the next level. Reflect on your current officer transition process, and learn new strategies that your leadership can implement to ensure your organization’s future success.
