11:30 a.m. registration
12:00 p.m. forum luncheon begins


Our programs are held at The Belo Mansion, 2101 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75201.

Join us on Friday, January 24th to hear about how the world is changing with growing geopolitical conflicts.  Those threats are most evident in the Middle East where the Trump administration recently took action to kill an Iranian general on Iraqi soil, leaving U.S. foreign policy in the region unclear and the consequences of the action unknown.  Join us to hear from a distinguished panel of experts who will discuss the history of conflict in the region, the potential geopolitical effects of the administration's actions, and the potential effects on election year domestic politics.
