Message from the Board

Welcome to the Winter-Spring 2020 Semester of Chesapeake Forum, 

an Academy for Lifelong Learning.


Following our exciting and successful launch of Chesapeake Forum in Fall 2019, our second semester presents even more engaging courses, all with an eye toward bringing opportunities for conversation and education to an audience that appreciates intellectual engagement.  

This curriculum is the culmination of many hours of work by our volunteer board members in recruiting, scheduling, communicating, and fundraising, as evidenced by the significant increase in offerings, from 12 total courses in our first semester last fall to 19 multi-session and 10 single-session courses for Winter-Spring 2020.

We thank the Mid-Shore Community Foundation for giving us the not-for-profit umbrella needed to continue our work, and the additional ongoing guidance and support of the Grayce B. Kerr Fund. 

We look forward to seeing you in our new programs, and hope you will join us as well in suggesting new programs and course leaders, sharing your experiences, and helping us spread the word about Chesapeake Forum throughout Talbot County.
