The Council on Foreign Relations is truly a national organization, with more than one-third of its members based outside of the New York and Washington, DC, areas. The goal of the National Program is to energize foreign policy conversations by providing a forum for these National members across the country and around the world to discuss pressing issues and contribute to CFR’s research and publications. The National Program organizes in-person roundtables in ten cities, virtual sessions over Zoom, and two large annual events: the National Symposium in California and the National Conference in New York. The program associate will support the planning and execution of these National Program events.
Founded in 1921, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is a leading nonprofit membership organization, research center, and publisher, with headquarters in New York, an office in Washington, DC, and programs nationwide.
