Local Connections, National Reflections

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 6:15 PM to 9:00 PM

China's rapid development directly impacts the lives of just about everyone in the United States. CHINA Town Hall is a national conversation involving more than eighty communities across the country, designed to give Americans the opportunity to learn about and explore critical issues of concern with leading China experts.

The evening will begin with a reception and hors d’oeuvre at 6:15 pm. The program itself will begin at 6:50 pm with opening remarks and a live national webcast featuring a conversation with Ambassador Susan F. Rice, former United States National Security Advisor (2013-17) and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (2009-13), moderated by Mr. Steven A. Orlins, President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations.

The national webcast will be followed by an on-site discussion with special Mason guest, Mr. John L. Holden, a veteran China expert and CEO of the U.S.-China Strong Foundation, on "U.S.-China Relations from Beijing and Washington, D.C." Mr. Holden will share his thoughts on the most recent developments in the U.S.-China relationship and will field any questions that members of the local audience may have.

This event is free and open to students, faculty, and the general public.
