We will share tools for successful recruitment of council members and strategies to keep your members engaged, even when meetings are 100% virtual. Finally, we'll describe our successes and challenges with the Transitions to Adulthood Center for Research's Family Advisory Board, with plenty of examples and specifics for you to use.
