Invest in tomorrow’s leaders today!

 

 

What your CIR Yearly Membership includes

  • Discount Member admission prices to all CIR events, including our in-person and livestream talks; our Great Decisions discussion series (put on by the Foreign Policy Association of America); our dinner-and-a-movie events; and other engaging activities.
  • Free passes to some of our events (at certain membership levels).
  • VIP admission to invitation-only events (for $300/year members and up).
  • New Member reception.
  • Receptions at private homes, and of course our famous Summer Gathering and December Holiday Party.
  • The opportunity to meet and network with international visitors, leaders, and like-minded folks in our community through CIR’s IVLP and Open World programs—including at exclusive members-only lectures and lunches with our international visitors.
  • The chance to meet with our High School Fellows and to volunteer for CIR’s educational programs.
  • Access to our monthly book club (free!)
  • A full or partial tax-deduction for your membership—which means your invaluable support to CIR may result in a tax break too! Or put it this way: you may have to donate a certain percentage of your income every year to a 501(c)(3). Why not support one that brings the world to you?
