A Do-it-yourself Approach to Meetings
Give your members a role in developing new small-scale meetings
Would you like to add energy and enthusiasm to your meeting roster without too much staff or resource involvement? Giving your members a role in developing new small-scale meetings could be one way to go about it.
That approach seems to be working for the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP), which in 2016 launched a small conference grant program that awards up to $10,000 to members who propose and plan small meetings. The meetings provide additional professional learning in the community and supplement what SPSP offers.
So far, almost a dozen events, including small conferences and workshops, have been held, including the program’s first international meeting, which took place in Waterloo, Canada, last month.
