The Baltimore Council on Foreign Affairs is dedicated to citizen education in foreign affairs. It is a non-partisan, non-position taking, not for profit, open membership association.
It’s centerpiece is a serious discussion of American foreign policy, its distinguished speakers program, which brings twelve to sixteen notable authorities to Baltimore to meet with members and guests each year.
Dues are kept remarkably low so that all with an interest in American foreign policy and world affairs can join. Annual membership dues are $60 for an individual, $90 for a family, and $30 for full-time students. Members may attend every address and accompanying receptions free of charge.
Contributing members are also invited to leadership dinners with speakers which follow programs.

All programs are available on our You Tube page. Listings by speaker name, topic, or chronology may be purchased if you contact the Council office. Also, videos of previous programs may be purchased or rented from the Council library.
