Facilitation Training for Community Members & Volunteers

  • Sisters Fire Hall, Community Room 301 South Elm Street Sisters, OR, 97759 (map)

If you’ve ever been asked to run a meeting and felt uncomfortable leading a large or diverse group of people…Or, if you’ve ever hesitated to spearhead a project because it may involve some disagreement…Or, if you just want to get better at helping others find solutions and consensus…

…Then, this special session is perfect for you.

Professional facilitator Terry Buchholz has graciously partnered with C4C to help area residents build their practical facilitation skills. This Jan. 30 evening workshop will offer attendees valuable advice and tips.

You’ll learn how to lead more effective and more collaborative gatherings—meetings that produce real and sustainable results. And you’ll feel encouraged and more confident about facilitating meetings, work sessions or projects for your nonprofits, businesses, churches, HOAs, schools and more.

You’ll also enjoy a free light community meal and a chance to connect with other community members and local volunteers from 5-5:45 p.m. in the community room at Sisters Fire Hall, 301 South Elm Street. The workshop will begin at 6 p.m.

With the help of grant funding and Terry’s generosity, this C4C workshop is being made available to the Sisters Country community for a nominal fee of $5 per person. But seats are limited. (The $5 will be collected at the door.)

A special thank you to St. Charles Health System and Deschutes County for helping to support this local learning opportunity. And also our gratitude goes to Ray’s Food Place and Sisters Coffee Company for sponsoring food and beverages.

This workshop is almost full. Registration will be offered on a first-come basis (until the seats are filled); and the final day to RSVP is Monday, Jan. 28.
