Coalition meetings are the few times that all members and staff are together. Take advantage of this and have the most effective meetings possible. Coalitions who achieve their goals include capacity building and member engagement as part of their regular meeting structure.
Here are some tried-and-true capacity building practices to incorporate into your meetings:
- SWOT Analysis
- Vision Planning
- Leadership Development
While doing these activities, keep conversations focused on your coalition’s efforts. Strive to stay inspired and engaged in your coalition’s long-term goals. Acknowledge and celebrate the important roles that each person plays in making changes in your community.
