Event Details

Registration is now open for 2023 Great Decisions sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association! PCFR and Global Ties Arizona have partnered again this year to bring the program and materials at no cost to our members.

PCFR members loved participating in Foreign Policy Association's Great Decisions series in 2020, 2021, and 2022. Here is what PCFR member Charles Blum had to say about the program: "Great Decisions and PCFR are a perfect match. This program provides an ideal platform for informed discussion, deeper insights into current issues and greater appreciation for the insights and experiences of our members."

Over the next 12 months, PCFR members who participate in this small discussion group will have the opportunity to dive deep on 8 of the most critical issues facing U.S. foreign policy makers.

Prior to each virtual session throughout the calendar year, participants will read a chapter from the Great Decisions Briefing Book and watch the associated video. Each session will feature a subject-matter expert and members have the opportunity to participate in the group discussions. PCFR member Charles Blum will moderate the series.

PCFR and Global Ties Arizona are covering the cost of the Great Decisions Briefing Book (a $35 value) for PCFR members and GTAZ participants. Be sure to save your spot. Registration closes January 27th.
