Session 1: Public Comments Workshop

This strategy/tactics workshop will work with PSOs to understand how and why to submit public comments. Several Forum members did this for the first time in 2019 while others are more seasoned in this activity. Many are ramping up their policy work to include public comments and other demonstration of support or opposition to proposed public policies. They are also encouraging more deeply their foundation members to submit comments. The value and impact of these types of efforts will be explored.
