HAT FORUM

LOCATION:  OISE, 252 Bloor Street West, Room 4-118
TOPIC:  WAYS TO IMPROVE THE FORUM AND ATTRACT MORE PARTICIPANTS
FACILTATOR:  Peter Davis

For discussion, please read:
(revised October 2008) which contains sensible ideas for conducting a constructive discussion group.
Peter says:  "I have attended meetings for about a year and wonder why some occasional participants fail to return. That a person does not continue in the group in itself is not evidence of a problem; but the fact that during the past year there really have been no new regular participants is worth discussing."
HAT meetings are free and open to members and the public. Call (416) 966-1361 for location information. ___________________________________________________
