The Council's Executive Vice President Beth Huddleston, who also serves as the City of Dallas Chief of Protocol, is featured in the January edition of PaperCity Dallas.

Her work is outlined in a Paper City presentation titled "INSPIRED TO LEAD Committed To People." This special salute honors people who "influence us with their words, actions vision and integrity."

China
China is involved in a series of newsy crises, including coping with a stock market that is experiencing turbulence previously unknown in the rigidly controlled Communist country.

The aftereffects may take a while to see, but there are people watching every step taken by China's government. The Council's International Perspectives Series presents a veteran China-watcher on Friday, April 29.

Get your tickets now to hear an assessment from Bruce J. Dickson of The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs. His topic is "China's Internal Politics: What Keeps The Party in Power and How Resilient Is That Power?"

Other timely IPS programs focus on the Iran Nuclear Agreement, the next president's foreign policy and the European Union's relationship with the United States. Register here.
