First Meeting of 2017
Great Decisions is a discussion program prepared each year by the Foreign Policy Association. The aim of the association, which was founded in 1918, is to help Americans learn more about international affairs. The LWVBN Great Decisions group meets nine times a year, from March through November.
We have two new members (that we know of) who will be joining us this year. Hopefully as many of you as possible will attend our first meeting of the year on Thursday, March 2, from 10:00 a.m. till noon at 1272 Delaware Avenue. Previous members are encouraged to bring their 2016 books, as Great Decisions does report on the opinion ballots for comparison. At this first meeting, you will receive your books, and we can set up leaders for the eight topics. New members are encouraged and welcome.
