Bringing Speakers to the Gunnison Valley Since 2003

A Season's End Letter from Public Policy's President ~

December 2015

Dear Friends of the Forum,

First of all, THANK YOU for your financial support and your attendance at the Forum this past summer. We had a wonderful line up and more people attended than any other year. As always, our speakers were very impressed by the intelligence of the audience
and the questions that challenged them. The audiences and I were also very impressed by the quality and knowledge of our speakers.

We are working hard on our speakers for next summer. We already have five speakers tentatively booked and are in communication with several others. Subjects include civil rights in America, the future of energy production in America from perhaps a more industry perspective, and a speaker on the "Right to Die", a moral and ethical issue that our aging population faces.
We are also seeking speakers on income disparity, Russia, and the migration problems throughout the world.

As we have for the last two years, we will not be charging admission and we will depend on your generosity to fund the expenses of travel, lodging, and rental of the Center for the Arts where we hope to have all our events in 2016. We do not pay honorariums to the speakers. We have been successful in drawing great people here through the friendship and contacts of our various board members.

The Forum is a 501(c) 3 organization and we do not have any employees:  this helps to keep costs down.

This is my fourth year as President of the Forum and I would encourage anyone who is interested in serving on the board to let me or any other board member know.

Please consider the Forum in you annual giving and we look forward to seeing you next summer.
