Dallas Committee on Foreign Relations is a non-profit organization focused on exploring leading-edge developments in foreign affairs. Through our members and programs, we promote greater knowledge of global affairs and a better understanding of the people, policies and events impacting present and future directions.
"Since its very first meeting in 1987, DCFR has proven to be the single best forum in North Texas for the discussion of foreign policy…a discreet, substantive institution befitting the political and economic importance of the region."

What Members are Saying
“Dee & Sharon — Well you certainly got the new DCFR year off to an excellent start today, in part because Leigh Anne believes so deeply in her work, but also because of the point/counterpoint debate Dee organized right after the talk. I have never seen a DCFR audience more drawn in than they were by this discussion.” Frank Kryza, Principal, The Monitor Group
“Thank you for hosting such a great program this morning. I especially liked the "conversational" style with Dee at the end followed by questions from the rest of the peanut gallery. This was a great way to start the day.” Kristina Kiik, Attorney, SettlePou
