Great Decisions Discussion Program

Do you like to keep up on current events? 

Do you want to meet new people?

Would you like to stretch your mind, point of view and expertise?

Then Great Decisions is just the program for you!

Created by the Foreign Policy Association of America (FPA) in 1954, Great Decisions Discussion Program is America’s largest grassroots discussion program that focuses on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book and meeting in a group setting to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today.  Discussing the topics with other members plays vital role in your learning and understanding of these issues and  everyone benefits from hearing different points of view.

Here's what some of our members had to say about the program:

"What a wonderful, wonderful Great Decisions season!  I loved my group and can't believe I have to wait a whole year until we assemble again to chew over current events.  Debbie B. 

" I wasn't sure if this year's program would work using the zoom format but it turned out great. Our discussions were much better than I imagined they would be and I learned  a lot. Thanks." Gerry S.  

The 2021 topics are:

  1. Global Supply Chains 
  2. Persian Gulf Security 
  3. Brexit and the EU
  4. The Arctic
  5. China in Africa
  6. The Two Koreas
  7. Roles of WHO
  8. The End of globalization?
