JOIN THE aMBASSADORS' ROUNDTABLE SERIES FOR THE
JOIN THE AMBASSADOR'S ROUNDTABLE!
Consider joining the Ambassadors’
Roundtable (AR) Series of the Forum for 2015-2016! During the coming season
there will be a total of eight programs at the Stamford Yacht Club- 4
breakfasts, one “after work”, 2 dinners and one luncheon- all featuring a
variety of excellent speakers.
I have been an AR member for about 4 years, and wonder why I didn't join
sooner. The Ambassador's Roundtable has a finger on the pulse of
international affairs. There's no other forum that reliably delivers
high-caliber speakers year-round on a wide range of international topics.
The depth and breadth of the speaker options ranges from academics and
authors to ambassadors and other government officials who offer insiders'
views of complicated foreign relations. Set at the beautiful Stamford Yacht
Club, I can't think of a more welcoming space to enjoy a meal and learn
about pressing world issues than the Ambassador's Roundtable lectures
offered by the World Affairs Forum.
- An AR Member
AR members may also attend the 4 Forum
Series programs at the Ferguson Library at no additional cost. And, as a
special benefit, an AR membership includes 2 free guest passes (a $60
value) to an AR breakfast during the
the Forum Office for an Application.
