Explore at your leisure and come back often. It is your world, know it!

Our central theme is education–we aim to promote a broader understanding of issues of global importance. We bring world and corporate leaders and subject matter experts to the region to facilitate a public awareness of key international issues as well as to raise the profile of Hampton Roads among national and international policy makers.

We appreciate your support through membership, donations, and sponsorship. Your contributions help shape future generations of leaders from Hampton Roads and help make the area more attractive to young professionals seeking a vibrant international community to live in.
