Great Decisions

GREAT DECISIONS is a global affairs discussion group that uses Foreign Policy Association “briefing books” as a guide to discussing major trends and issues in world affairs. The eight essays in each book are used to present the basic facts that then support the discussion of a particular issue.

Beginning in January 2018, the Reston-Herndon Area Branch will meet at 7:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. An invitation (‘evite’) with all of the details, including that month’s location, will be sent to all members inviting them to join the discussion each month.

Using a similar format for each topic, the co-chairs act as facilitators to introduce the topic. We ask each member to read the article and anticipate stimulating and informative discussions as members expand on the topic by bringing their own experiences and knowledge to the subject. Participants may buy the briefing books by going to the Foreign Policy Association website at to place an order. You can now pre-order for 2018.
