For our January Forum, FOCUS started off the new year by asking for community input for future FOCUS forums.
FOCUS asked members of the public to offer topics they would want covered in future forums. “FOCUS Forum on the Future,” was an open exchange about which topics to cover in 2022 and ways to involve more people from the community. The forum provided a space for conversation, idea-sharing, and most importantly, listening to the residents of Central New York.
FOCUS conducted a similar forum last year (2021) that led to forum topics on digital inclusion, housing, mental health in a time of COVID-19, and more, which can be viewed on our website. The purpose of these yearly forums is to stay up-to-date with relevant information and timely issues of concern to the community.
