Washington County Republican Party Representative to the Forum - Brian Bishop

Founded in 1956, the Public Affairs Forum provides a common meeting place for the interchange of ideas and to stimulate thinking on civic matters. Each week the Forum brings together community leaders, members, and guests who care about what happens in Washington County, the Metro region, and our state.

As Republicans we have to do more than just talk to each other. We need to get out and connect with other people in our community and share our Republican values.  The WashCo GOP made the decision to become Organizational Members of the Public Affairs Forum to give Republicans in Washington County a voice in our community.

Under that membership, every current PCP in Washington County has membership privileges to the Forum.  All are encouraged to go to the meetings, ask questions, and participate in the discussions. We're not going to change people's mind if we don't participate in the conversation!

The forum meets over lunch every Monday, September through June, (except holidays) at Coyotes Bar and Grill, 5301 W Baseline Rd. Hillsboro.

There is no charge for admission.


Doors open at 11:30 AM, and the speakers start at noon. Lunch is available to order from the menu.


Following the speaker, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Asking questions of our speakers is a privilege of Forum membership.


The Forum is a neutral arena for education of members and the public by speakers on public policy. The Forum endorses no particular point of view and takes no responsibility for the opinions expressed by speakers, which are not necessarily the opinions of the Forum or its members.


Programs are videotaped for broadcasting on YouTube.com.
