Welcome to the Boise Committee on Foreign Relations
The Boise Committee on Foreign Relations (BoiseCFR) is a non-profit, non-partisan group of Treasure Valley area business, professional and other persons interested in foreign relation issues and dialogue. Our primary goal is to advance the public information and dialogue on foreign relation issues.
The Boise Committee on Foreign Relations often provides speakers
to local universities and public schools to help inform students on foreign policy issues. The adjacent picture
shows Ambassador Vicki Huddleson talking to Boise high students in
December about North Africa. This was only a few weeks before
a major uprising occured in Mali.
BoiseCFR Dinner Meetings
Information about the next BoiseCFR meeting can be found on the Coming Events page.
The BoiseCFR's regular series of dinner meetings
typically run from September through May of each season.
The speakers at these meetings are knowledgeable international and national experts on a wide variety of foreign policy topics. The speakers provide insights and perspectives about current foreign relation issues that are often hard to obtain from other sources.
A typical meeting starts as a social period with fellow members, guests, and the speaker prior to dinner. After dinner there is a short announcement and introduction period. The speaker's presentation is then given, and the meeting ends with an open Q & A session with the speaker.
If these meetings are something you might find interesting, please go to our Membership page to get further details about joining.
