GREAT DECISIONS is a global affairs discussion group that uses Foreign Policy Association “briefing books” as guides 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 Wednesday of each month in the library of the Unitarian Universalist Church, located at 1625 Wiehle Ave, Reston. An invitation (‘evite’) with all of the details 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. Each member is asked to read the article and can 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 fpa.org to place an order.
