This bulletin has been prepared in response to many hundreds of requests for information about public affairs forums. It is impossible in such limited space to give a comprehensive description of the forum method of adult civic education or its application in various parts of the country. However, the authors have tried to include in the bulletin a number of the suggestions for effective forum organization which have been found useful in their own experience and in that of many others who have been active in this field. Chapters in this bulletin include: (1) Building for Civic Intelligence; (2) Community-wide Forums at Des Moines, Iowa; (3) The General Forum Movement; (4) Techniques for Forum Management; and (5) A Nation-wide Program of Forums. A bibliography is provided. (Contains 14 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
