The Great Decisions program highlights eight of the most thought-provoking foreign policy challenges facing Americans each year. Please join the Metropolitan Republican Club for lively, intellectually-stimulating conversation on major foreign policy issues facing the nation.
Admission is free, but participation is helped with the purchase of the Great Decisions 2014 Briefing Book for $20. The Great Decisions 2014 Briefing Book features impartial, thought-provoking analyses on eight issues of concern to U.S. policy makers today. Each article is written by carefully selected experts, offers questions and tools for discussion, as well as policy options for U.S. officials.
Discuss a different topic each Sunday from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the clubhouse.
