New Resources for NCWA Members

With June greetings from Naples, I’m writing to alert you to some opportunities to hear/read experts opinions intended to help us make sense of the complicated times in which we are living.  

Over the past months our digital media have become awash with Zoom conferences and webinars addressing international affairs and the global pandemic.  Our Program Committee has identified some of the most valuable of these, and the following link directs you to them.  Click here for more information. 

The Program Committee is also hard at work developing realistic plans for the coming year. We’ll be in touch with you as soon as these are finalized.  In the meantime, stay safe, healthy, and happy. 

With warmest wishes, 

Jim Schmotter, President, Naples Council on World Affairs
