Join a Virtual Roundtable on Democracy's Challenge

Fed up with politics and a widening partisan divide, many Americans are turning away from public life. In 2006, the National Issues Forums network convened citizens across the country in forums to deliberate about Democracy’s Challenge: Reclaiming the Public’s Role. The results of these forums have been compiled in a report by Doble Research Associates commissioned by the Kettering Foundation and will be discussed at a roundtable at the National Press Club in D.C. on Monday (I’ll be there!).

On Wednesday (Nov. 15) at 1 pm Eastern (10 am Pacific), Texas Forums will be hosting a virtual roundtable with Doble Research Associates and members of the National Issues Forums network. John Doble, Janay Cody, and Laura Kelsky, of Doble Research Associates will discuss the findings of their interviews with moderators and forum participants, review of recorded forums, analysis of post-forum questionnaires, and observation of forums. You’re all invited to join us, so click on “more” if you’re interested!

To attend this event, go to the OPAL (Online Programming for All Libraries) Website at www.opal-online.org and enter the auditorium link on the left hand side of the page (or just click here). You will need a computer with speakers. If you have a microphone attached to your computer, you will be able to pose questions to the panelist orally. Otherwise, you can interact via text messaging in the virtual auditorium.

If you have never attended an OPAL event, check out the video introduction at: http://www.opal-online.org/OPALpromo200603b.wmv (this is a 3-minute Windows Media Video file).
