This one-hour training will equip you to plan, organize, and lead a House Meeting as part of the BC Health Coalition's Listening Campaign.
A House Meeting is a group of 6-10 people invited to have an intentional conversation in a comfortable setting. These may be virtual meetings, in people’s homes, or set up in table groups/breakout rooms at a larger venue so that many house meetings can occur at the same time. The purposes of a house meeting are to:
- Unearth stories that call for change
- Build relationships of trust and understanding
- Connect with community leaders who have appetite for action
- Identify issues of common concern to inform campaign priorities
We'll cover everything from thinking through the logistics, making invitations, team roles, leading the conversation, reporting-back, and setting up the next step in the organizing cycle.
Feel free to bring your lunch. There will be an interactive role play about halfway through.
