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.

The Baltimore Council on Foreign Affairs relies solely on the generous support of its members and the general public to educate the Baltimore community on American foreign policy and current world events.
