Discussion Groups
The Naples Great Decisions program brings together members to study timely international issues. The topics are selected by the Foreign Policy Association and published in their briefing books. Each group has a leader who facilitates the discussion. All leaders are dedicated to providing a non-partisan forum and endeavor to include each member in the discussion.

Each group is limited to 30 participants. Participants must be a Regular or Associate member of the Naples Council on World Affairs.

Each group meets once a week for 8 consecutive weeks at the same place on the same day at the same time. The 2014 sessions begin the week of January 20th, and continue through the week of March 10th.  Each session will last two hours.
