DES MOINES COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS (DMCFR)
The Des Moines Committee on Foreign Relations (DMCFR) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing public dialogue on foreign relations. DMCFR holds monthly meetings featuring a speaker on topics of various aspects of foreign policy and international issues. Our meetings are held at Wakonda Country Club in Des Moines, Iowa.
Established as a program of the Council on Foreign Relations in 1938, American Committees on Foreign Relations (AFCR) became its own association in 1995 and established headquarters in Washington, D.C. Comprised of more than 30 local affiliates around the country, AFCR promotes dialogue between civic leaders and policy makers and other foreign relations experts through lecture-discussions and other civic forums.
