Registration Link:


Do you want to be more involved in a decision making group but are not sure where to begin? Are you tired of feeling like the token representative instead of an active member of a decision-making group? So many times we are on committees or in meetings, but don't know what the process is or how to fully participate. This workshop will introduce you to a resource to help you navigate decision-making groups, give information about the roles of families in these groups, and offer practical tips and strategies for putting your decision-making skills into practice.
