The Denver Council on Foreign Relations  is committed to heightening public awareness and building understanding of contemporary and emerging international issues. In doing so, DCFR seeks a better informed Colorado regarding the global issues that impact us all. We do so by hosting a range of events, forums, and discussions, all open to the public and funded by our members designed to help the citizens of  Metro Denver gain access to experts on national and international issues.

​​​​​​​We look forward to seeing you at a DCFR event soon!

Whether it be our speakers series, conferences & programs, or fellowships, we cannot enhance our efforts without community support. You may, of course, specify a particular program (speakers, scholarship, etc.) or leave the allocation to your Board, all of whom serve DCFR pro bono

Thank you in advance for supporting our efforts!

General George W. Casey, Jr. is one of the most accomplished soldiers in U.S. history and an authority on strategic and transformational leadership. As the 36th Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army from April 2007 to 2011, General Casey led what is arguably the world's largest and most complex organization, 1.1 million people strong, with a $200+ billion annual budget, during one of the most extraordinary periods in military and global political history. He is widely credited with restoring balance to the war-weary U.S. Army and leading the transformation necessary to ensure the Army remained relevant in current conflicts. Prior to this post, General Casey commanded the MultiNational Force-Iraq, a coalition of more than 30 countries, where he guided the Iraq mission through its toughest days. He currently lectures on leadership at the Johnson School of Management, Cornell University, at other business schools, and to the leaders of national and multinational corporations. He also lectures on International Relations at the Korbel School, University of Denver. He has published a book, Strategic Reflections, Operation Iraqi Freedom, July 2004-2007 (October 2012), about his experiences in Iraq, and several articles on leadership, including “Leading in a VUCA World”, Fortune Magazine (March 20, 2014).
