Join us on March 22-23 for Churchill Fellows Weekend 2024 when Admiral James Stavridis (USN, Ret.) will deliver the Enid and R. Crosby Kemper Lecture. This year's event is part of Churchill 2024, a global commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Winston Churchill's birth.

In 1946, Winston Churchill created a blueprint for national and international security in his "The Sinews of Peace" or 'iron curtain' speech at Westminster College. The foundations of U.S. national security policies and institutions, as well as diplomatic norms, were informed and inspired by Churchill's words—words that helped to wage and win the Cold War.

But what of today?

In an age when communication is instantaneous, diffused, and received with diminished discernment, how secure is the safety and welcome of those who value freedom and democracy? The stakes are high as disinformation campaigns, cyberattacks, terrorism, and armed conflict in Ukraine and Gaza pose new and grave threats. 

The Association of Churchill Fellows at Westminster College invites you to join us at America's National Churchill Museum in Fulton, Missouri, as Fellows, veterans, and other distinguished experts examine the military, legal, and economic challenges of security in today's complex world.


A block of rooms with a special, discounted rate has been reserved at the Holiday Inn Express in nearby Kingdom City, Missouri, Please call 573-310-6020 and mention "Churchill Fellows Weekend" to reserve a room.
