Live. Learn. Share.
Dear Lifelong Learners,
A year ago this September, Chesapeake Forum made its debut as a community-based Academy for Lifelong Learning. Our 2019 Fall semester and our 2020 Winter/Spring semester courses were successful and enjoyed a wonderful response from our audience, with some courses sold out.
We appreciate the partnerships we developed throughout Talbot County this past year. Chesapeake Forum held classes in a wide variety of locations:
We also enjoyed the support of community-based businesses Jason's Computers, Piazza and Snifters.
We've changed gears in response to the COVID pandemic. Rather than in-person learning, our 2020 Fall curriculum offers not only Live Zoom Classes, but recordings of the Zoom Classes, as well as pre-recorded Webinars.
One thing has not changed, and that is our dedication to bringing you courses, discussions, presentations, field trips and events that encompass diverse topics. The programs are led by volunteer faculty who are passionate about sharing their expertise and experience.
I'm happy to say that we already have many interesting course proposals to choose from for the Winter/Spring semester and that registrations for both LIVE and RECORDED classes for the Fall Semester are beating records!
Now is the time to tell your friends and family, near and far, about Chesapeake Forum. Invite them to join our virtual learning experience this fall. We hope to extend our reach beyond Talbot County to lifelong learners wherever they may be. Ask them to check out our website, www.chesapeakeforum.org, to view our courses, our instructors and to register for classes. Now is the perfect time to be a part of our community of lifelong learners.
We very much appreciate your support and hope to see you soon in a Chesapeake Forum online course.
President, Chesapeake Forum
