To Our Valued CFN Partners and Our Community
First, we want to take this opportunity to thank you again for joining with the Community Forums Network to help people across the state share their views on important topics, as we seek to find areas of consensus.
Your enthusiasm for our mission has helped us reach out across the state. During our four survey rounds, nearly 8,000 people shared their opinions on topics of importance to all of us. And all of the comments (a record number in the last round) have been shared with decision makers in Olympia.
It has been our pleasure to help people across Washington share their views, and to help our 114 Community Partners earn $39,150 in grants that we know will benefit our communities.
We sincerely appreciate your participation and hope that you have found the experience to be of value to you and your community.
Round 4 on Healthcare in Washington state will be the final round of surveys through the Community Forums Network. As we are sure you are aware, funding for any community program is very tight, and we are unable to continue the program at this time.
For the future, we welcome the opportunity to provide information on CFN to a community-based organization interested in taking up the program so that people across our state may continue to have a nonpartisan channel through which to share their views. We stand ready to share all we have learned. If you, or another you know, is interested please contact us at CFNetwork@CommunityForums.org or 206-465-6963.
Thank you very much for your dedicated participation in the Community Forums Network.
We asked, and 3,244 of you answered…
How much should we spend on K12 education and how should we spend it? We discovered consensus on key points as 3,244 Washington residents responded. Your insights and feedback were shared with policymakers in Olympia.
We are very pleased to announce our Round 4 Grant Recipients. We appreciate what all our 114 Partners do for their communities.
