President’s Letter

Lee Wilwerding

We have gotten the new Season’s Friday Speaker Series off to a roaring start with P J Crowley and Anand Menon. The rest of the series will build on this excellent start with an impressive list of speakers yet to come. Assuming No Snow in Washington and No Hurricanes on HHI, Ambassador James Jeffrey will be presenting on 3 Nov on the Middle East. He will be followed on 17 Nov by Andrew Selee on the topic of Mexico’s Relations with the United States in the Administration of Trump. Given the activities in the always challenging Middle East of late and the fateful negotiations on NAFTA these are both very timely presentations.
