I want 2023 to be the best year my stuttering support group in Greenville, SC has ever experienced.

To help me think smarter about growing my group, I started to write an “Action Plan” with ideas to help me get more people to attend our monthly meetings. I then invited a few other NSA chapter leaders to work together on our action plans.

We met on Zoom a few times to discuss our 2023 Chapter Action Plans. We talked about ways to get regulars to attend more regularly. How to attract first-timers. Ways to better connect with SLPs, Colleges and SLP students to broaden our reach. And more…

Below is a 30-minute video sharing many of strategies and ideas we discussed to help us grow our stuttering support groups in 2023. Grab a pen and some paper as you watch this video and be ready to write down some ideas to use in the coming months to grow your stuttering support group attendance.

Prior to the calls, I sent out a Meeting Pre-Read that outlines research findings for why people attend stuttering support groups and the many benefits people who stutter experience from attending meetings. Following the calls, I sent out an Action Plan Summary that shares my guided conversation talking points. Both downloads are below.

NOTE: The strategic pathways and ideas shared in the video and downloads are from my experiences as a stuttering support group leader and career as a marketer. This was done as a volunteer effort on my own to help other NSA Chapter Leaders think smarter about making a greater impact with their group.

I truly hope this helps you think smarter and do better to grow your group.
