Schindler-Rainman, Eva; Lippitt, Ronald
This resource booklet is intended to present a new set of tools and procedures for making meetings more participative. It is aimed at anyone who plans programs, meetings, conferences, classes, workshops, seminars, or conventions--from corporation presidents to managers to youth group leaders.

In unit 3, the steps for designing all types of meetings are listed, and unit 4 presents a checklist of things to remember in planning and conducting a meeting. Resources for improving meetings are presented in unit 5, and traps to avoid in planning and leading meetings are listed in unit 6. Unit 7 contains alternative ways to cope with typical problems. Unit 8 has illustrative designs, instruments, and procedures to use in meetings. Ways to make use of this resource booklet are presented in unit 9, and unit 10 is a selected bibliography. (Author/JM)
