I’m very new—I was a global free agent for about a year and then joined Boston and became co-leader in 6 months
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)

i think the "issue point person" can be a powerful role when we start to do glomestic work
David Plasterer
45:28
Aww. Thanks Cecilia!

How many members are there in your Indiana group?

About 8 in Indianapolis Domestic
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
47:21
9-10 in Indianapolis global
Brendan Bow
47:58

Hannah Houston
50:09
If we have space/time, I’d love to hear any advice regarding how to conduct a productive monthly group meeting. I’m a new volunteer (less than 5 months) and a brand new group leader and I still feel like I have no idea what I’m doing most of the time.. :)

love group norms. and reiterating them at group meetings
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)

Lisa Marchal
01:01:32
A great way to think about group norms: "What behaviors can we collectively agree on that will help us be the best group we can be?"
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
01:01:43
the RESULTS chapter profile is a tool to give to new advocates, which has space to add your group norms! you can share right off the bat: https://results.org/wp-content/uploads/RESULTS-Chapter-Profile.docx

Here it is! https://results.org/wp-content/uploads/REF_2018_Facilitators_Guide.pdf
Brendan Bow
01:03:26
Formulating or adjusting group norms are a great way to get new members involved in a low-stakes way and help them feel like they hold a space and have a say in the leadership or administration of a group. "This is what we want to keep in mind while we're all here, is there anything you think we should add? :)"
David Plasterer
01:05:46
Yes!! Celebrate!!
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
