Meetings consist of two face-to-face discussions and two teleconferences. Components include:

  • Member-directed scenarios: council members are polled before each meeting to determine topics of greatest interest
  • Scenario generation: analysis is based on our proprietary Global Link Model
  • Presentation: scenarios and their implications for strategies and contingency plans are discussed in depth
