Forum Council

The Forum Council works collaboratively with the Forum Staff to produce member programs, services, and benefits. The 15 members of the Forum Council are elected by the voting members of The Forum. The Council accomplishes its work through Standing Committees, Working Groups, and Task Forces. In practice, this means that the Council provides the expertise needed to advance the five content areas (represented in five standing committees) through the production of deliverable products and services that benefit the membership. Working together with Forum Staff, the Council has done extraordinary work over many years to drive the production of our membership deliverables. The Council apprises the Forum Board of Directors of its activities, and these activities further the mission and strategic plan of the organization by providing Forum members with meaningful products and benefits.
