Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) National Conference

Event Website

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries. Founded in 1921, CFR takes no institutional positions on matters of policy. Our goal is to start a conversation in this country about the need for Americans to better understand the world.

The National Program convenes two large events each year: the National Conference in June at CFR's New York headquarters, and the National Symposium in December in Menlo Park, California.

The National Conference brings together members from across the country and around the world for two and a half days of discussions and networking with fellow members and other leading thinkers and practitioners. The conference is underwritten by a generous gift given in memory of Peter E. Haas from the Mimi and Peter Haas Fund.

The National Symposium, inaugurated in 2015, provides a unique opportunity for National members to connect on the West Coast and allows CFR to draw upon the extraordinary talent in the region.

GRI Founding Director Dr. Stephen Flynn and GRI Senior Research Scientist in Cybersecurity and Resilience Rob Knake will speak on America’s Infrastructure and Cybersecurity, respectively.
