How do you organize/run your meetings?
I would love to have any tips or hints that anyone can offer on the subject of running meetings. First of all, what is the goal of your meeting; how do you set one? How many people do you usually get showing up for a gardeners meeting? How long do your meetings run?
What would you consider a 'good meeting'; what happens during a good/productive meeting? What's the 'worste' meeting (s) that you've ever been to? If projects or 'good' ideas are suggested how do you carry them out? Do you let people volunteer to meet at another time to work on a particular project? How do you reach a concensus on an idea; do you try to get everyone to agree? How do you procede if 'some' people like an idea, but others don't?
So far, our Community Garden is being run without formal officers appointed. If anyone else has been succesful with this I would like to hear about it.
Thanks for any ideas or tips.
