About Us

Our Mission

The American Committees on Foreign Relations is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to serving the national security interests of the U.S by enhancing citizen knowledge and understanding of foreign policy through energetic, face-to-face discourse in meetings at its chapters across the country.

What We Do

The Committees on Foreign Relations were founded beginning in 1938 by the Council on Foreign Relations, New York, becoming independent American Committees in 1995.  The committees from coast to coast convene community leaders, educators and members of the general public in off-the-record discussions with international affairs experts. We are a grass-roots organization convinced that only through respectful, face-to-face dialogue among and between the public and the international affairs community will we achieve understanding of, and appreciation for, the importance of international affairs in our nation’s welfare.

 

Our Members Include

  • Executives and board members of key industries
  • Senior partners at major national law firms
  • Editors and publishers
  • College and university faculty
  • Members of Congress and state lawmakers
  • Retired senior policy officials, diplomats and military officers
 

American Committees on Foreign Relations Past Presidents

Current and past Presidents of the American Committees on Foreign Relations are meaningful contributors to the organization’s mission of promoting interest in and conversation about U.S. foreign policy. Our DC-based operation, governed by the President and Executive Committee of our Board of Directors, which represents members and committees across the country, provides projects, programs and events that reach well beyond the national capitol region.
