"Take a chance to try something new. You may be surprised at what you gain from this experience. This could be the experience of your career!"
- Krystal Collier, Panelist

Dear members, 
THANK YOU for being a part of our first mentoring panel on leading and facilitating community groups. We would also like to thank our various panelists for taking the time to present to our community and for helping us make this webinar series a success! 
Members, please take the opportunity to click on the links below to find the presentation recordings and slides:

This webinar tackles the question of what it means to be a leader of a community group. Hear from current leaders on how they transitioned from being active participants on group calls to serving as representatives for their fellow community members. In this webinar, the panelists addressed what it means to be a "Chair" and what is involved in terms of leadership. They also discussed how members can build from their experiences and attain the confidence to serve as leaders for their respective community groups.
"We are in this to improve public health and it doesn't happen unless people step up to make what's important happen. Don't think of yourself as stepping up to decide what goes on. Think of yourself as stepping up to link people together to facilitate making things happen."
- Joe Gibson, Panelist
As a continuation of learning how members can become leaders of their community groups, in this webinar, the panelists shared insights on what it takes to facilitate groups and meetings as well as they tools that they utilize in their current roles. Additionally, the panelists discussed strategies and best practices they incorporate into their meetings to encourage engagement and productive conversations amongst virtual groups. 

"The skills I learned in this webinar will allow me to be more confident in leading those who have more experience than I do."
