The White House Conference on Aging Community Forums Handbook.
White House Conference on Aging, Washington, DC.
This guide, designed to assist groups interested in participating in the 1981 White House Conference on Aging, describes the community forum as an opportunity for local citizens to hold public discussions on issues of importance to older persons and to the general community. The handbook introduces readers to the Conference, outlines the design of proposed local, state, and regional Conference activities, and offers a "how to" guide for groups organizing community forums that addresses the topics of sponsorship, participants, forum size, time, and location as well as ideas for organizing, conducting, and reporting a forum. Themes for community forums are suggested and lists of potential sponsors are given. The next section describes publicity efforts for the forums through newspapers, radio, television, and public service announcements. A series of 11 questions are presented which suggest discussion ideas for community forums. The names and addresses of state agencies on aging and of area agencies within each state are also provided. (NRB)
