CIC National Capital (Ottawa): The US Perspective on a Changing World

June 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

$15 – $35

The CIC National Capital Branch is pleased to launch its North America Study Group with an address by Mr. Richard Mills Jr., the Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of the United States of America to Canada. Reflecting his extensive global experience, we have proposed that he address three areas: Canada-U.S. relations; hemispheric relations (e.g. Venezuela, Cuba); and wider international issues (selected regional concerns; multilateral affairs).

Mr. Mills, Jr. accepted his position as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy Ottawa in November 2018. He is a career member of the Senior Foreign Service with the rank of Minister Counselor. Mr. Mills Jr. previously served as U.S. Ambassador to Armenia from 2015-2018. His other posts include: Beirut, Lebanon; Valetta, Malta; Baghdad, Iraq; London, United Kingdom; and the United Nations in New York, among other assignments.

David MacDuff, the founding chair of the North America Study Group, will introduce the speaker and moderate the Q&A session. He is a career foreign service officer in the Department of Global Affairs who has served in four positions on Canada-United States relations.

The event will follow the Chatham House Rule. Only the guest speaker will attend in an official capacity. Other participants will take part as individual members of the CIC or as guests. Any views they express will be entirely personal and will not reflect any professional or institutional affiliation they may have.

The North America Study Group joins five CIC-NCB counterparts covering: Africa; Asia-Pacific; Intelligence Futures; Latin America and Caribbean; and Middle East.
