Join Us  For Great Decisions!

For many years our AAUW branch has sponsored a Great Decisions discussion group. Great Decisions is a nonpartisan/nonprofit program sponsored all over the country by the Foreign Policy Association, and locally by the Tucson Great Decisions Association (TGDA). Each year discussion groups follow eight different topics via a “briefing book” and a video, with topics ranging from climate change to multinational corporations to individual countries, all with an eye to how these topics affect American policies. You can find an annotated list of this year’s topics at our website, http://www.tgda.org. 

The Tucson Great Decisions Association will kick off its 2021 season of discussion groups by welcoming back Former Ambassador David Dunford. Ambassador Dunford has recently written an important and timely book that shows why diplomacy still matters in an era of reduced budgets and insufficient understanding of just what diplomats do. He’ll talk with us on Foreign Policy Challenges and Opportunities for the Biden Administration.

 This program is open to all as an online webinar via Zoom on Friday, January 22nd at 2 PM. The fee for registration is just $10 per person, and the link for the Zoom access will be sent to all who register. You can sign up online with a credit card at www.tgda.org or you can register with a check by mail using the form there or contact the Tucson Great Decisions Association, P.O. Box 69726, Oro Valley, AZ 85737. Include your first/last names and email address.
