CFR is a national organization, with a plurality of its membership based outside of New York and Washington, DC. The National Program provides a forum for these members across the country and around the world to discuss pressing foreign policy issues and contribute to CFR’s research. Convening approximately one hundred on-the-ground sessions annually, the National Program is centered around roundtables that build on the expertise of CFR fellows, members, and community leaders. Two annual events, the National Symposium and the National Conference, bring together National members for networking and in-depth foreign policy discussions.
