Effective Communication Action Team

This action team focuses on the use of "Motivational Interviewing", which offers a set of communication tools anyone can use in their advocacy work. This action team provides a system for learning and practicing these skills, and a forum for sharing how you are using them in your lobby meetings, outreach, recruitment and all your CCL work. We hold a monthly webinar on the second Wednesday of the month. Scroll down for details and links to previous webinars.

The Effective Communication Action Team Leaders are David Christian‍ and Morgan McCue‍
