Regular Meetings

The Committee sponsors monthly meetings (usually with dinner) at which experts discuss
current international issues. The meetings are characterized by a wide variety of high-quality
speakers drawn from the policy-making, diplomatic, and policy-intellectual communities.

While meetings are reserved for members and guests and are “not for attribution,” the
Committee shares its speakers with local media, corporations, educational institutions, and
other civic organizations when appropriate.


Meeting and connecting with members and the ability to visit other committees around the
country as one might be near while traveling.

News Service

Free access to the American Committees on Foreign Relations News Group: a daily
distribution of important domestic and international newspaper/magazine articles, intelligence
reports, analytical studies, opinion pieces, etc.

The distribution is done by e-mail only. (No attempt is made to provide a balance of topics and
viewpoints on any given day, and we are not responsible for content.)

National Meeting

Each year in May the American Committees on Foreign Relations (www.acfr.org) holds a
national meeting for its Committee Members in Washington, D.C.

Study Trips

On occasion, the American Committees on Foreign Relations (ACFR) and other affiliated
committees sponsor and organize study trips abroad for its members and associates.


The programs and other activities of the St. Louis Committee frequently serve broad local and
regional audiences and reach out to schools, colleges, corporations and the media.
