Strengthen Your Facilitation Skills and Enhance Your Impact

Designed with experienced professionals like you in mind, this series offers valuable insights into navigating group dynamics, designing effective discussions, and handling unforeseen situations. Through practical assignments and collaborative peer sharing, you'll have the opportunity to build your facilitation skills (such as probing, bridging, synthesizing, and reflecting listening), while gaining confidence in your role and building your value to the organization.

You will be matched with a cohort of your association peers from across the US for three highly interactive 90-minute sessions.
Over the course of the three-session series, participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of how to map out a facilitation process that helps a group work through common needs, such as brainstorming, problem-solving, and consensus-building.
  • Create follow-up assignments between sessions that expose you to opportunities to practice your facilitation skills and techniques in real-life settings.
  • Share your experiences with peers to develop a richer learning experience.

    Presented by The Alliance Learning Collective
    The Alliance Learning Collective is a collaboration between state societies from across the US committed to bringing high-quality educational opportunities to association professionals. VSAE is a member of the Association Societies Alliance
