2022 Nebraska Ambassadors Forum
9:30 to 11 a.m. October 25 @ Willa Cather Dining Center, Red Cloud Suite

The theme is Latin America: The Neighbor We Ignore at Our Peril.

From the forum's website:
The United States has asserted primacy in Latin America yet frequently ignored this important region in our policy despite its importance to our trade and security. Regions can no longer be segregated in our old way. This was evident from Africa to the Middle East and Asia as the U.S. sought support for the conflict in Ukraine. The Ambassadors Forum for 2022 will bring together three former senior diplomats with deep experience in Latin America to explore overarching issues and respond to questions.

Pre-registration is required.
