USING ALL OF WHAT THE CHAMBER DOES WELL IN LARGE GROUPS, TO CULTIVATE AND INSPIRE SMALL ‘MICRO GROUP’ OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN AND MAKE MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS.
START A GROUP, JOIN A GROUP
Micro Groups are born from the desire of Chamber members to have small group opportunities to connect, share, and learn in an open environment with fellow members and guests. Anyone with this shared desire and a group idea can start and be a point person of a group. Others can join and participate. When you come, be prepared to share and learn in a conversational environment. When you leave a group, be prepared to share it with others.
BEING A POINT PERSON
As a point person, you get to establish a topic. Responsibilities beyond that are to pick a place and time for your group to meet and communicate that to your group. You’ll serve as the moderator at your Micro Group gatherings, but not be required to present or lead beyond that. On occasion, the Chamber will ask you to report on your groups participation. That is all.
NO SPECTATORS, ONLY PARTICIPANTS
Group attendees should come with a spirit of sharing relevant knowledge, information and news pertinent to your group’s topic. Individual group members should always be looking to contribute in some way to support the gathering. Presentations by group members are fine if desired, but should not be required – and should always be done in the spirit of sharing and learning, NOT SELLING!
