OUR MISSION

PCFR is dedicated to growing Arizona’s global prominence by providing forums that explore critical foreign policy issues and build enduring international connections.

Guiding Principles

  • Drive collaboration among internationally oriented organizations in Metro Phoenix.
  • Provide members a unique opportunity to interact with leading international experts.
  • Make leaders more fully aware of international developments and promote more effective action in adapting to a rapidly changing world.
  • Promote better understanding of global trends and their implications.
  • Inform and improve policy making in both the private and public sectors.
  • Foster communication on vital international economic, social and political issues.
  • Help enrich, develop and align the international community and promote collaboration among international organizations in Arizona.
  • PCFR is dedicated to positioning Arizona as a major regional and international center.

What We Do

We offer monthly programs year-round, including our unique event the “International State of the State” address, which is an open ended dialogue by significant leaders of government, industry, and education who discuss Arizona’s role in the changing global environment. Throughout our season we bring renowned speakers to share candid insights. This provides our members with intriguing and intellectually challenging, interactive experiences as they participate in the Q & A following the speakers’ remarks.

For more than 40 years PCFR has welcomed a variety of distinguished guests; US and foreign ambassadors, cabinet ministers, policy-makers, economists, analysts, journalists, authors, renowned educators and heads of state. Meetings are specifically restricted to our membership, and our guests’ comments are off the record, thus encouraging free and frank discussion.

The Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations strives to raise the level of international awareness in both public and private sectors because of our belief that unbiased information leads to improved policy making. We’re determined to promote better understanding of global trends, and we particularly encourage the involvement of students of government and international affairs.

The end result of our airing on all sides of significant issues should be a heightened respect for honorable discussion. As our speakers enlighten us, we improve our community relationships, as well as our global business climate, and we create appreciation for the greater truth..that we are all on this planet to enhance its progress, stability, and survival.
