No More Bad, Boring Meetings!

Do your own members fall asleep in your meetings? Do you have trouble getting more than a handful to show up, let alone participate? Do you have out-of-control members who are rude and monopolize the meeting? Is there way too much texting and talking going on?

You don't have to settle for poor meetings anymore!

ASGA offers many resources to help you reform and enhance your SG meetings, including workshops, webinars, templates, how-to videos, and meeting critiques.
