We would also like to highlight a public event, Citizen’s Forum on the Nation’s Debt.
Local citizens are invited to join a national conversation on the nation’s debt in an open citizen’s forum. This free event is on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 6 p.m. at the Greenbrier County Court House at 200 Court Street in downtown Lewisburg, WV. Participants may register by email or phone to Liz Dulaney, Moderator from the public engagement program, Virginia Tech, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 304-497-2532. Light fare provided.
Forum participants will consider and discuss three approaches to confront the nation’s debt. These approaches are presented in the issue guide entitled, ‘A Nation in Debt: How Can We Pay the Bills? Upon registration, Ms. Dulaney will email to you the issue guide for review. Other accommodations are available for those without access to email. Please consider registering early to ensure proper receipt of the issue guide. Participants are encouraged to bring their issue guide on June 20 for quick reference.
The citizen forum format provides an environment for citizen deliberation in framing what are the important issues and decisions regarding public matters. The forums are nonpartisan and encourage diverse viewpoints. The National Issues Forums Institute in collaboration with the Kettering Foundation prepare the guides for public use.
