Sign up for Monday’s webinar on national debt forums

The National Issues Forums Institute invites you to join them on a webinar on Monday about their public forums on the national debt and recent briefings to policymakers in Washington, DC.

The webinar, which will take place from 2:00 to 3:00 Eastern on Monday (Jan 28th), will bring you up to date on the results of forums nationwide, as reported in No Easy Way Out, and National Issues Forums (NIF) briefings on the forums on Capitol Hill. Register for the webinar here.

Between Fall 2011 and Summer 2012, National Issues Forums (NIF) conveners hosted deliberative forums on the debt in 24 states and the District of Columbia and in nearly 50 different venues.  Through NIF, citizens across the country had a chance to weigh in different approaches to tackling the debt and talk with their fellow citizens about the country’s choices.  This free webinar reports on the results of this important effort and will cover these topics:

  • An update on NIF’s impact in its 2011-2012 forum season
  • Key insights from the forums nationwide
  • Results from questionnaires completed by more than 1200 forum participants
  • Report on NIF briefings for key Congressional Staff in December 2012-including staff for U.S. Department of the Treasury, Speaker John Boehner, and Senator Harry Reid
  • A chance to talk about what we are accomplishing and what we can do better
  • Participants can ask questions and/or give comments via chat (or voice, if your computer has a microphone)
