All About On The Table: Your Voice Matters
On November 7th, citizens from all over the chattahoochee valley have the OPPORTUNITY to put their thoughts on the table. It's not just about talking about our community, it's also about listening.
1. As a host, location is up to you!
As as host, you can choose to host your table anywhere you choose on November 7. Whether it's at home, a restaurant or coffee shop, or at one of the Public Tables offered by "SuperHosts," there is a table for everyone. Click here to register as a host or find a table to join.
This is a chance to discuss not only what’s great about our community, but also ways to make it even better — more sustainable, just, safe, strong and vibrant. Having the chance to be a part of this type of conversation is important for the prosperity of the Chattahoochee Valley Area and it's residents.
3. Coming Together
When residents, organizations, businesses and government come together, we can all make contributions that add to a greater solution. This is the starting place for meaningful conversation, and together we can make positive changes for the city.
How It Works
Being a host is easy. A host commits to hosting a conversation over breakfast, lunch, dinner, a coffee break or anytime in between. The invite list is up to you – friends, family, colleagues, neighbors – and can be hosted in homes, restaurants, places of worship, libraries, offices, the breakroom at work or other community locations. The conversations can be sit down, catered, picnic, brown bag or potluck – it is entirely up to the host. Before the conversation, you'll receive a Host Toolkit with everything you need, including a conversation guide and easy ideas for taking action after your event. Everyone is welcome to serve as a host.
Many people will attend an On the Table conversation by receiving an invitation from an individual or organizational host. If you're interested in participating but don't have a host, we invite you to attend an open table! Open tables will be set up at various locations throughout Columbus.
Superhosts are organizations — nonprofits, places of worship, businesses, schools, civic organizations and others — that commit to hosting at least 15 tables, 8 to 12 people per table. If this describes your organization, please contact us at 706-718-9565 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
