PTO Meeting Toolkit


PTO Meeting Toolkit

Meetings that are run well and kept short will build your parent group's reputation for being organized and effective. This guide is for anyone who prepares documents for meetings or presides over them, or for anyone who would like to know how to be a good meeting leader.

The toolkit walks through what it takes to present a meeting well, from tasks beforehand (such as putting together an agenda and publicizing the meeting), during (such as the order of business, how to take a vote, and dealing with challenging discussions), and after (getting the minutes in order). Helpful templates for common meeting documents are also included.
