Dinner Meeting Information


Member dinners are held the first Wednesday of each month, September through June.

They take place at:

Annapolis Doubletree Hotel
210 Holiday Court (where Forest Drive ends at Riva Road)
Annapolis MD

Meeting schedule:

6:00 pm Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres
7:00 pm Buffet Dinner
8:00 pm Guest Speaker, usually including a question-and-answer period
9:00 pm Closing Remarks

Each meeting has a single invited guest speaker who represents a specific foreign country or is a representative of a major U.S. government organization, U.S. Congress or international-multilateral organization. Most often the speakers are Ambassadors who present major issues of interest and concern to them and the United States. In its almost 50 years of existence, the Club has enjoyed presentations by Ambassadors from more than 115 countries and regions throughout the world.

The guest presentation starts at approximately 8:00 pm and allows 15 to 20 minutes for questions and answers, usually ending at 9:00 pm. The audience submits questions on cards at the end of the presentation and most speakers answer all questions, without “boundaries”, as time allows.

The emphasis is always on informality, and each meeting is oriented toward casual and interesting dinner conversation. To further that objective, the Club also welcomes the guest speaker’s spouse, companion or associate at each dinner meeting.

  • Cost of dinner is $35 for members and $40 for non-members, not including a cash bar open before each dinner.
  • If you would like to come as a guest for a “trial membership”, contact the Membership or Reservation Chair.
