The Louisville Forum is the preeminent, nonpartisan public issues group in Louisville. Founded in 1984, the Forum debates contemporary and sometimes controversial public policy issues that affect the greater Louisville region. As an independent, nonprofit organization, the Forum never takes a stand on issues. Membership is open to the public at large, and guests are welcome at all meetings.
Regular meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at Vincenzo’s restaurant with the exception of the Annual Dinner meeting held in February. Our membership includes prominent community leaders and individuals from a variety of backgrounds. The average attendance at our monthly meeting is 80 persons. In an effort to engage young people in the issues facing our community, the Louisville Forum hosts 8 students and administrators monthly during the school year. Every monthly meeting also includes a sizeable number of guests who attend a particular meeting out of interest in the topic. Our monthly meetings are rebroadcast on Metro TV several times during the following month.
The Louisville Forum also hosts an Annual Meeting, usually in February. Approximately 150 members and guests attend. Registration and cocktails are followed by dinner and the Fleur-de-Lis Award presentation, which honors individuals for outstanding contributions to the Louisville community. (A list of past recipients is available on the Louisville Forum’s website, http://www.louisvilleforum.org/fleur-de-lis-award/.)
