Don't forget: Oshkosh Civility Project breakfast Feb. 24 - February 15 2011

OSHKOSH, WI - The Oshkosh Community Foundation and the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce will sponsor an open community breakfast session featuring nationally-recognized civility authority and author P.M. Forni, Ph.D.

Several Oshkosh leaders have launched an effort to improve communication by reminding the community of the basic principles of respect that should guide interaction with each other. Forni directs the Civility Institute at Johns Hopkins University. He lectures and writes extensively on the civility-ethics-quality of life connection.

He has been used as an expert resource in The New York Times and Washington Post and has appeared on "Oprah." His book, "Choosing Civility," has inspired communities, organizations and corporations around the country to rally around civility.
