Need Help With This Site?

The Ohio Roundtable web site was designed with our audience in mind. We have tried to construct the site to be easily navigable, searchable, and attractive. We have found that our users fall into several general groups. There are current supporters of Ohio Roundtable, political action groups, researchers and students, legislators, and concerned citizens. There are also users that have heard the Public Square radio program and are interested in learning more, plus a healthy mixture of people that have surfed into our site.

The table below provides a summary of some of the sections of the site. Also, try our site map to get an overall view of the pages. This is just a guide to get you started; we hope you will use all of the sections of the site to get the most benefit.

If you have comments about our site, please click here to let the web development team know. And, if you are concerned at all about privacy, please read our policy.
