How It Works
The Pacific Council’s Virtual Book Club offers another way for members to engage around foreign policy issues through a flexible reading and dialogue schedule. The books we read will be relevant to the Pacific Council’s mission to advance the foreign affairs conversation on the West Coast while building our community’s knowledge and thought leadership alongside their busy schedules. Joining the book club is completely free. You just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy. The group will read one book every quarter so that you'll have plenty of time for each book. You do not have to commit to read every book.
There are three main reasons we hope you'll be excited to participate in our book club:
1. Connect With Fellow Pacific Council Members: Want another way to connect and engage with your fellow members? Joining our book club will introduce you to members across industries, generations, and geographies to help you improve your network.
2. Advance Your Career: The books you read may make you more effective in areas critical to success like leadership, communication, and productivity, and also enhance your knowledge on a specific topic.
3. Check Off That Reading List: It’s easier to commit to reading a book you’ve been meaning to read for months when you’re doing it with a group. Joining our book club gives you the opportunity to read more and enjoy all the benefits that come with it.
