The Center sponsors a number of events throughout the year, ranging from our annual ‘Keeper of the Flame’ Award Dinner to our High-Level Roundtable Discussions and Symposia. Each of these events uniquely stimulates and contributes to the flow of information between the various elements of the security policy community.
The High-Level Roundtable Discussions and Symposia permit informal, off-the-record exchanges between key members of the executive and legislative branches, the media, industry representatives and members of the Center’s staff and National Security Advisory Council.
We also hold press conferences throughout the year to inform the media and general public as to our policy findings or to highlight national security issues that require near-term action.
All Center for Security Policy events are by invitation only. For more information, contact the Center at (202) 835-9077 or [email protected].
