Description

*For Members and Sponsors of the World Affairs Council*


Join us for an engaging evening of dialogue in celebration of our Council members and sponsors' dedicated support and the end of another successful programming season. Find out what's in store for the World Affairs Council's next season!

We will present "The US Legal Immigration System: Who Gets In and How?" featuring our keynote speaker, John Caulfield

For almost 40 years, John Caulfield served as a career American diplomat who managed some of the most complex relations in Latin America for the United States, most recently as Chief of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, Cuba.

While in Cuba, he negotiated pragmatic agreements on immigration, environmental protection, civil aviation and cultural affairs. He also supported the aspirations of ordinary Cubans for political rights and economic opportunities in a difficult environment.

As Chief of the U.S. Interests Section, Mr. Caulfield led a team that provided a window for the U.S. Government to view the developments in Cuba. His analysis was critical to the formulation of U.S. policy.

Earlier in his State Department career John was a consular officer and directed our largest immigrant visa processing centers abroad. Over his career as a consular officer he has personally interviewed tens of thousands of immigrants and temporary visa applicants and supervised the visa issuance process for well over one million applicants. He also served as the State Department’s liaison with the US Congress on consular and immigration matters.

Additionally, the Governance Committee has been working to fill open positions of the Board of Directors. The election of the proposed slate will be held this evening.
