About the Speaker Series:
In collaboration with the Commonwealth Club of Northern California, the Committee of 100 U.S.-China Policy Speakers Series serves as a platform to promote constructive dialogue on U.S.-China relations in the Bay Area. Held quarterly since 2015, these events invite policy experts with contrasting views on China to have a conversation and share their ideas. The goal is to provide nuanced perspectives beyond the headlines on issues that impact U.S.-China bilateral relations with an emphasis on constructive collaboration as opposed to conflict.
THE COMMITTEE OF 100
The Committee of 100 is a U.S. 501(c)(3) leadership organization of prominent Chinese Americans in business, government, academia, and the arts. For over a quarter century, the Committee has monitored issues affecting Chinese Americans and served as a high-level bridge in the U.S.-China dialogue fostering regular exchanges with the leadership of Beijing, Taipei, and Washington, D.C. Members of the Committee of 100 are leading U.S. citizens of Chinese descent who leverage their collective influence, resources and experiences to address important topics shaping U.S.-China relations as well as issues affecting the Chinese American community. The C100 Speakers Forum Series is a high-level platform that examines major issues in U.S.-China relations and the Asian American community. Forums take place across C100’s five main regions: New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Greater China.
THE COMMONWEALTH CLUB
Founded in 1903, The Commonwealth Club, the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum, has played host to a diverse and distinctive array of speakers, from Teddy Roosevelt in 1911 to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Governor Jerry Brown, political commentator David Brooks and author Christopher Hitchens in recent years.
