2007 TEAM FORUMS
This year, we invite teams from FRC, FVC and FLL to participate in Team Forums at the Championship. Voice your opinions and give feedback on your team’s FIRST experience and topics relevant to the entire FIRST community. There are forums being held specifically for each program. There will student-focused and adult-focused forums as well. Check the schedule and location for which forum you should attend.
For those who cannot attend the Team Forums at the FIRST Championship, FIRST will be conducting FRC regional forums in May. Full details will be on our website at a later date, including times, dates and locations of regional team forums in your area.
