Public Affairs Forum
We are happy to continue this valuable program bringing public officials to the community providing important information that matters to the community. These events are being held in-person as well as online using Zoom each Thursday, 7:30-8:30AM. Our in-person events are $10/person and you can pre-register for these by visiting our calendar and find the in-person registration option: Events Calendar. You can also pay at the door when you arrive at Harbor Covenant Church, 5601 Gustafson Drive NW, 98335 (follow the signs to the Main Entrance in the back).
To receive the Zoom meeting code, please register for each event. Once registered, the confirmation email will include the Zoom meeting link. At the conclusion of each event, we will continue hearing from the public officials who may be in attendance that day. These officials may include, the Mayor, Police Chief, Fire Department, our sponsor Peninsula Light Company, PenMet Parks, and Chamber of Commerce.

- Questions can be submitted in advance to: email@example.com.
- Questions are answered in the order received.
New to Zoom? Here's how it works:
Zoom is a video conferencing app. You can download a free version of the app at Zoom.us or allow a couple extra minutes when you attend your first zoom meeting to set up your account. If you get stuck or need help downloading the app, we can help prior to the session. Simply email Miriam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can login to the meetings through your smart phone, tablet or computer. If you login using your camera, please remember that we will see what you're wearing.
