Grid Forward Members Sharing and Pulling Together

The Forward Focus Virtual Town Hall format lets us encourage as much back-and-forth discussion as possible. We’ll cap the attendance to give every attendee a chance to contribute. We won’t share any specific comments outside of this group, just a general summary for our organization.

The above line-up for contributors is not final, so if you have lessons you’d like to share or questions you’d like to explore submit your idea by May 13.
