About the Committee

National Security Committee members examine political, military, economic, social, legal and naturally occurring events throughout the world and evaluate how they affect the security interests of the United States and other nations.

Members are active in the areas of intelligence, immigration, cybersecurity, asymmetrical warfare, supply chain security, nuclear non-proliferation, space weaponization, international governing bodies such as the UN and NATO, and in various geographic regions worldwide. Members produce programs for regular ABA International Section meetings and other venues, including the United Nations and Capitol Hill, publish articles and promulgate policy proposals regarding national security topics.

Dear Colleagues:

This is an invitation to our next ABA SIL National Security Committee call: Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at 3 pm EST.

We will follow the same format established last year, starting with a guest speaker for about a half-hour of presentation and questions. The usual rules apply: No recordings; no attribution; no speeches by participants instead of questions.

We will finish the hour with any announcements, followed by the steering committee business discussion (open to all).

The speaker at this next monthly call will be Nelson Cunningham, President of McLarty Associates addressing "Trade Wars and the death of the rules-based international order”.

Call in coordinates are as follows:

US DIAL-IN NUMBER: 515.604.9050

When you are dialing into the US number, if you receive a message saying “All circuits are busy”, try dialing in again. If that doesn’t work, call the backup number 781-838-3391 and enter the original phone number when prompted, before entering the Access Code.
