What are Forums?
Forums are similar to meetings, but whereas meetings might be a regular occurrence for a community group, forums are held to specifically discuss an issue and reach a resolution, lasting from a few sessions to being regularly held for the activity or project duration.
Many of the meeting considerations we have just outlined will be relevant, but here the choice of stakeholder group will be imperative. Your stakeholder group should comprise a range of people who are active in their community, are respected by their peers and who can offer a different perspective.
