Secretaries of State roundtable sold out

The Report of the Secretaries of State: Bipartisan Advice to the Next Administration featuring Henry Kissinger, James Baker III, Warren Christopher and Madeleine Albright on March 27 is sold out.  A waiting list procedure has been created to try to ensure that all seats will be filled for the roundtable, where four former U.S. secretaries of state will be in Athens to discuss current U.S. foreign policy issues with the goal of providing direction and counsel to the next presidential administration.

“We are delighted with the ticket response. It is quite remarkable that more than 2,100 tickets have been distributed so quickly.  However, we want to strongly encourage those who find that they have other commitments on the day of the event to return their tickets to the Classic Center as soon as they are able so that others may have the opportunity to partake in this exciting and popular event,” said C. Donald Johnson, the director of the School of Law’s Dean Rusk Center, which is co-sponsoring the event.

People who have not been able to secure tickets to the roundtable should contact the Classic Center at 1-800-864-4160 or to be placed on a first come, first served waiting list. Tickets are required for entry and, as they become available, the Classic Center will contact those on the list to redistribute them.  Ticket cost is $10 for members of the general public.  UGA faculty, staff and students can obtain their tickets for free by showing a UGA ID. Those who cannot use tickets they have obtained are urged to contact the Classic Center for ticket return procedures.
