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 in the past have been held in person. For the foreseeable future, we will be holding these presentations online using Zoom each Thursday, 7:30-8:30AM.
To receive the meeting code information, please register for each event. You will then receive an email with the Zoom meeting information. If you are not familiar with Zoom, please visit Zoom.com and create your free account. This will allow you to login from a phone, tablet or computer.
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.

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.
