Program Planning

Presenting a program, at an association meeting, is an effective way to encourage more members to participate. The program might involve a speaker, community forum, student panel or special activity. And, it might focus on topics of interest to everyone on campus such as student learning, health or wellness.

When organizing programs for association meetings, remember to:

  • Survey members for input on possible programs
  • Plan and publicize programs in advance
  • Keep the program schedule flexible to address an unexpected situation on campus
  • Provide presentations on topics or activities that bring families from all neighborhoods to the meeting

More tips and information on program planning is found in “Creating an Event” in the “Programs” chapter of the Toolkit.
