Great Decisions start second season in Findlay

Programs at Hancock Historical Museum

The Findlay Chapter of Great Decisions will begin its second season with an introductory meeting on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 2 p.m. at the Hancock Historical Museum, W. Sandusky Street.  Anyone interested in learning more about critical issues facing America is encouraged to attend.

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs.  The program involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching a DVD and meeting in a discussion group. 

This non-partisan, grassroots model adopted more than 50 years ago, continues today with tens of thousands of participants taking part in discussions nationwide annually.

Informal discussion group meetings will be held at the Museum monthly starting in February, with a break over the summer.  Sunday dates of the meetings will be determined at the introductory session. 

According to facilitator Jerry Sisser, participation in the program requires no prior knowledge of foreign policy or world affairs. Reading is not extensive and the group views the 30-minute DVD at the beginning of each meeting. 

“It’s a great way to learn about America’s changing position in the world and to meet others who are interested in discussion and sharing ideas,” said Sisser.  The only cost is the purchase of the Great Decisions Briefing Book. Couples can share the book.

• Topics for the 2019 session are:
• Refugees and Global Migration
• The Middle East: Regional Disorder
• Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future?
• The Rise of Populism in Europe
• Decoding U.S.-China Trade
• Cyber Conflict and Geopolitics
• The United States and Mexico: Partnership Tested
• State of the State Department and Diplomacy

No registration is necessary to attend the January 13 introductory meeting.  For more information, contact Sisser at gsisser@woh.rr.com or 419-422-0302.
