Local Great Decisions groups meet to share ideas and opinions. All program participants are invited to register their views on the Great Decisions opinion ballot, which is presented to U.S. leaders and major media.  Ballots are still available at the links below.

2017 Topics:



See you in February 2018!

The group met for nine weekly discussion sessions on Tuesdays beginning Tuesday January 24, 2017 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m at the Sugar Land Fort Bend Library (the First Colony Barnes & Noble Bookstore didn’t allow us back–we are SUCH a rowdy group).   Many thanks to Enid Tovy who has organized this interesting group for 30+ years.  No expertise, only interest (and preparation), is required.  For more information contact: Enid Tovy or Bill Johnson.

Early each spring, AAUW offers Great Decisions to:

  • Explore the Issues
    The Great Decisions program highlights each of today’s most significant, far-reaching foreign policy issues. In compelling presentations, Great Decisions provides facts and nonpartisan analysis of the “great decisions” facing the U.S. public and policymakers.
  • Learn about Foreign Policy
    The Great Decisions program is a unique learning experience. You will acquire skills to assess global developments and policymakers’ decisions. You will help build the American democracy’s strong citizen base.
