Residents are invited to come to a free 6-7:30 p.m. public forum Thursday at the Berry Auditorium (in the administration services conference center on the main campus of Henry Ford Community College, 5101 Evergreen Road in Dearborn).

The Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce will be offering its second Community Conversations public event of this quarter; said Ronald J. Hinrichs, director of events for the chamber; in partnership with the Center for Michigan. Hinrichs explained that the Center for Michigan is a nonpartisan “think-and-do” tank, which organized Community Conversations to help frame strategies for government legislators.

“They provide public events and invite residents to share their input on shaping government policy,” Hinrichs said. “They have gotten a lot of dialogue with officials at the state and local level, and done an outstanding job in providing people a voice to help in shaping government policy.”

Hinrichs knows of one Dearborn Heights City Council member who attended the previous Community Conversations forum, he said, and expects tomorrow's event to run through the entire 6-7:30 p.m. scheduled time. While the chamber encourages people to register in advance at the chamber's website, so it can have some idea how many will be showing up, Hinrichs said people are free simply to show up at the forum.

The March 6 forum's topics of discussion will include education, the economy, quality of life and public financial priorities.

“Community Conversations is a unique and valuable opportunity for the Dearborn and Dearborn Heights communities to engage in real dialogue that will have a significant impact on public policy in the State of Michigan in 2014 and beyond,” commented Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce President Jackie Lovejoy. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the Center for Michigan to host a program that will have many benefits for our entire region.”

Those wishing to register or seek more information can phone (313) 584-6100, or visit the chamber online at www.dearbornareachamber.org. For more information on the Center for Michigan, visit www.thecenterformichigan.net.
