Does your forum have a constitution or set of norms that summarizes goals, expectations, and responsibilities? If you have such a document, has the forum reviewed it recently to confirm that it is up-to-date and reflects the way the forum wants to operate?
I encourage you to review the beautiful purpose statement created by a relatively new Harvard Business School forum. On two, carefully crafted pages, they describe their purpose, who they are, how they work together, and what success looks like. It’s suitable for framing, and they’ve graciously agreed to share it with others. Bring this document to your next forum meeting, and use it as a launching point to start a conversation about your forum’s purpose.
