|What We Do|
Association presents a series of eight monthly dinner meetings which
feature speakers selected for their experience or expertise on the
topics selected by the Board of Directors. The meetings are
usually conducted on the fourth Thursday of the month. A social
hour starts at 17:30 (5:30) PM, dinner is at 18:30 (6:30) PM, the
speaker begins promptly at 19:30 (7:30) PM, and a Q/A
session follows. The presentation ONLY is free and
open to the public. There is a small fee for the dinner.
The Association hosts a reception in November for the “International Fellows Class” at the U.S. Army War College. The Fellows are foreign military officers from more than 50 countries who spend a year studying with their U.S. military counterparts.
In May, the Association sponsors a visit to the U.S. State Department followed by a briefing at a foreign embassy from its ambassador. A corresponding ethnic luncheon is planned between the briefings.
“Great Decisions” program encourages small informal groups
to meet to discuss key issues from the National Association study
guide, Great Decisions.
