Tuesday, September 20th marked the first GMM of the 2016-2017 JLSB year. Our theme of the night was favorite sports team. Lindsay Sanger brought to order her first meeting as President, kicking off the evening by leading members through our strategic plan and presenting awards to the month. The Festival of Trees team prepped us for what's to come at this year's FOT and served as a perfect lead in for our LEAD training of the month in fundraising. Sustainer Kathryn Rudloff, gave an interactive presentation that challenged members to deliver and receive feedback to each other during fundraising pitch practice. Key points to take away were to consider your audience and the importance of the pause after asking for participation. With sound advice from Kathryn, JLSB members and new members left with the skills they need to put their best foot forward when approaching people about fundraising participation.
