If this is going to be held in March during Ashley's Legislative spring break, this might be the first Forum of 2021.
If Ashley is agreeable & we have a date/time, we would move forward with press releases, email notices, Facebook announcements, etc.

This is a topic we had on the possible Forum list before the pandemic & before the extensive use of Zoom which might make it easier to pursue now.
