Submitted: World Affairs Roundtable

FAIRHOPE, Ala. - The World Affairs Roundtable fall series begins its 11th year this fall. The roundtable is a program that promotes "thoughtful, respectful, open and facilitated discussions on contemporary topics.”  Free, and open to the public, the programs are held at the Fairhope public library in the Giddens Conference Center.

In 2008, two local residents, Dick Westmoreland, a retired engineer and international business executive and Dr. Glen Stephenson, a retired professor of geography started the roundtable discussions on the premise that many gulf coast residents wanted to have a better understanding of our interconnected world. They also knew that this area is home to numerous individuals with global experience and education whose insights could be shared in roundtable discussions. Since 2008, the World Affairs Roundtable has sponsored 43 discussions about contemporary global issues.

The World Affairs Roundtable draws its speakers from subject matter experts who reside in Fairhope and the nearby neighboring gulf coast communities. We are looking for speakers to present discussions on current global topics for the 2019/2020 series. If interested, please contact the steering committee at worldaffairsroundtable@gmail.com.
