GATHER MEMBERS ONLINE TO LEARN TOGETHER
Fear not, you can live up to member expectations by offering powerful moments. So just what is a powerful moment? This concept is borrowed from Chip and Dan Heath’s book, The Power of Moments: Why Certain Experiences Have Extraordinary Impact.
- A powerful moment elevates. You are lifted out of the ordinary and taken to another level of understanding, connectivity, or experience.
- It brings new insight and shapes the way you see the world.
- It creates connection and deepens your ties with others.
When in the membership journey do these powerful moments happen? Here’s a hint: we’ve seen it at Association Component Exchange (CEX) and during our virtual workshops. When people gather, in person or virtually, to learn together, something magical happens.
But chapters need your help creating these memorable virtual learning experiences. Many of the participants in our workshop help their chapters with Zoom technical training as well as facilitator and presenter training. They provide screen-share videos, tip sheets, and guides for facilitators and speakers. You could also share resources on using interactive icebreakers and breakout room exercises.
Get chapter leaders comfortable with virtual learning by hosting meetings for them based on their role, for example, finance, business development, and education. Extend invitations to these meetings beyond chapter officers to committee chairs and others. They’ll enjoy meeting their peers and you’ll deepen your connection to future leaders.
