Dear Friends of the Forum,

Welcome to our new website, and thank you for a great 2013-2014 season. We hope you have been able to attend at least some of this year’s offerings, and if so, that you have found them informative. Over the summer, we’ll be planning for next fall and beyond. Please contact us with any ideas for topics and speakers.

Hope to see you in September!
