Tuesday Talk: Six Key Ways to Help Your Group Thrive!

Want to know how to manage common problems in groups or learn the best tips for encouraging members to increase their work-related or emotional ROI? No matter what kind of group you are leading, from quitting smoking to getting over divorce or from workplace teams to book clubs, people who support each other are often more effective at problem solving and mutual aid than individuals working in isolation. You will learn techniques for strengthening the group you work with as well as different types of groups, leadership styles, roles and group agreements. Our guest speaker is Ann Steiner, Ph.D., MFT, Certified Group Psychotherapist, Fellow, American Group Psychotherapy Association, FAGPA, Psychotherapist/ Consultant / Professional Speaker - Author: Just released Help Your Group Thrive: A Workbook and Planning Guide, Routledge Books - www.DrSteiner.com

Friday, November 16, 2018Signature Chamber Event

40th Annual Community Thanksgiving Breakfast

The 40th Annual Community Thanksgiving Breakfast will be held on Friday, November 16, 2018 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church.

 

We invite everyone - politicos, non-profits, school representatives, business leaders, community leaders, Rotarians, our Chamber members, etc. to all come together to share in a breakfast and enjoy our speaker, Donna Wright Sommerville, co-founder of Grateful Gatherings.

 

Grateful Gatherings began in 2013 when Donna and her family saw a 10-year-old named Ayisha on the local news talking about being homeless during the holidays. Donna connected with the family and delivered Christmas dinner and presents. A few months later, Ayisha’s family was placed in a new apartment but had nothing to furnish their new home… nothing! Donna emailed 20 friends; within four days, Ayisha’s family had enough furniture and household items to set up their new home and new life.

 

Donna, our keynote speaker, will present "Furnishing Homes with Hope". Event starts at 7am and ends by 8:30am. Pastor Dan Senter from Our Savior’s Lutheran Church will provide the Invocation and Rev. Robin Wells from the Lafayette United Methodist Church will do the Benediction at the end of the breakfast. 

 

Cost is $25 per person. No tickets will be sold at the door. 

 


When:
Friday, November 16, 2018 7:00 AM thru 08:30 AM
