Discussion Forums


This is a place for FOA members to exchange news, views, and information. Messages are posted by discussion group, then by topic. You participate by "posting" a message to a discussion group. You can also "reply" publicly to a previous posting. Messages are arranged into threads of discussion, so that you can easily read the replies to a particular topic.
