Council Open House

Ivo H. Daalder, President, Chicago Council on Global Affairs

Do you care about what’s happening in the world and think it’s important for the United States to play an active role in global affairs? Would you like to be part of a community of Chicagoans who want to explore the issues that will shape our global future?

Join us for an open house where you’ll to hear from the Council’s president, Ivo Daalder, a former US ambassador to NATO; meet and network with other globally minded Chicagoans; and learn about unique opportunities Council membership offers.

If lunching with Samantha Power, posing for a photo with General James Mattis, or asking Nobel Prize-winning economist Abhijit Banerjee a question is on your bucket list, learn how to take advantage of those opportunities at this open house. Bring a friend who might be interested, and if one or both of you join by the end of the evening, you’ll get 20% off your year-long membership.

What have you got to lose? There’s no fee to register, and the first drink is on us.
