Mission Statement The Mission of the Public Policy Forum is to provide an opportunity for education, information and networking regarding public policy issues that may be related to discussions in the various public policy committees. Topics, guest speakers, discussion opportunities and presentations are selected that will be the most topical and of the greatest use and interest to attending members. The Forum will focus on issues related to the public policy development of C.A.R. and to the greatest extent possible will not overlap with non-policy forums.
