The Forum Club of the Palm Beaches, Florida’s largest nonpartisan political and public affairs organization, announced its 2020-2021 Season Opener and 22-member Board of Directors. West Palm Beach partner Harvey E. Oyer, III, was named Chair of the Forum Club and will lead the organization in its 45th season of promoting thought and stimulating dialogue.
“The Forum Club has established itself as the premier organization for thought leadership in Florida,” said Harvey. “With such a dynamic, diverse group of leaders at the helm, the non-profit organization will continue its rich legacy of coming together to engage in thoughtful discourse and challenge our community to have difficult conversations about the issues impacting our nation and beyond. Today’s announcement is indicative of the incredible caliber of speakers the Forum Club attracts and the bold content our 45th Season will present.”
For 45 seasons, the Forum Club has continued to bring in an impressive lineup of national leaders whose words and actions affect the world in which we live. It will mark the beginning of this season on Monday, July 20, at noon with a virtual lunch featuring Ambassador John R. Bolton, former National Security Advisor to President Donald J. Trump and author of current New York Times best seller, The Room Where It Happened. Due to the circumstances surrounding coronavirus, the non-profit organization has transitioned to virtual events until it is safe for the organization to gather in person again.
