VIRTUAL: Exclusive Council Update for President's Club Members

Ivo H. Daalder, President, Chicago Council on Global Affairs; Dina Smeltz, Senior Fellow, Public Opinion and Foreign Policy

In November, Americans will cast their ballots to determine the future direction of US foreign policy and the reputation of the United States abroad as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to tear through the country.

Please join the Chicago Council on Global Affairs via Zoom for a private briefing with Council President Ivo Daalder for an overview of current global issues amid the pandemic and how the Council is impacted. In addition, senior fellow Dina Smeltz will share findings from the 2020 Chicago Council Survey of American public opinion and US foreign policy. The Survey reveals that while Republicans believe one of the lessons learned from the pandemic experience is national economic self-sufficiency, Democrats believe the United States needs to cooperate more with other countries and that the supply and production of goods should be distributed among many different countries.

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs began surveying Americans about foreign policy in 1974, and it remains one of the signature products of the Council with a worldwide reputation. Before your briefing on the results, answer a few of the questions we asked in the 2020 Chicago Council Survey. We’ll see how your views match up against the American public! Please click here to complete the pre-event survey.

We hope you can attend this exclusive update for President’s Club members and look forward to connecting with you.

This program is complimentary for current President’s Club ($1,000) and above. Want to join or upgrade your membership to attend? Join online or contact a member of our membership team at +1 312-256-8559.
