MCA Great Decisions
Facilitated by Harvey Oriel and Gene Goldenzeil
Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs.
The program involves reading a chapter from the Great Decisions briefing book, listening to a member of the group introduce the topic in a fifteen minute summary, discussing issues related to that topic and then answering questions suggested in the book.
The program lasts for 8 weeks and the group may decide to continue year round with issues of that time.
This is a COED program. MCA members may register a significant other.
You must only register once for this series of programs. You will receive reminders one week and one day before each session.
