CNAS Council Benefits
The CNAS Council enriches the Center’s intellectual agenda by offering its members a vehicle to express their views and provide critical support to the Center’s work. The Council also serves as a powerful link between the public and private sectors. Members are invited to participate in an array of private discussions with national security leaders around the country in New York; San Francisco; Silicon Valley; and Washington, D.C. (these events are being held virtually during the Covid-19 pandemic).
