NORTH COUNTY CHAPTER EVENTS
The complicated world we live in is illuminated a bit more every week at the North County Chapter’s Thursday Morning Forum in Rancho Bernardo. These free, weekly talks address a range of global topics in a relaxed and social atmosphere. Forums begin with a coffee social at 9:30 a.m., followed by a program at 10 a.m. and Q&A from 11:10 a.m. to noon. The public is invited and no reservation is needed.
Unless otherwise indicated, Forums are held at the Remington Club (Phase II), 16916 Hierba Drive, Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA 92128. Parking is available in the adjacent shopping center.

Congratulations Received for Your Civility and Mutual Respect, Thank-you All.
We recently hosted Professor John E. Rielly (Ph.D.), President Emeritus of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs (after three decades as President of the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations), as well as the holder of teaching positions at Northwestern Univ. and Univ. of Cal. San Diego. He was accompanied by his wife Irene, who attended the program and the Round-Table-Lunch (as she had attended many other gatherings). In her post-visit email she singled out our Chapter for special praise, stating,
“What a bright and interesting assortment of people and views … If more people could engage in the open and respectful conversation that we were honored to enjoy, wouldn’t the country be doing just great? Congratulations on … such a marvelous organization.”
Remington Club. We thank and appreciate the Remington Club for its continued support. We are very pleased to be guests in their house. Their continuing cooperation and support helps to make these programs possible.
Chapter Mission and Policy. The North County Chapter supports free and fair discussion of foreign policy and the conduct of international affairs by presenting a balance of speakers with diverse viewpoints about policies and events, while maintaining respect and civility in our discourse. Although our speakers and members have opinions, the Chapter is steadfastly non-partisan and takes no stand on any public issue, policy, or candidate.
