    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.
