Join The Baker Institute Roundtable

 

The Roundtable is the Baker Institute's premier membership forum, dedicated to advancing the mission of the institute. Through annual giving, members of this group foster community engagement in some of the most pressing public policy challenges while interacting with world leaders, national decision-makers and leading researchers. Laura Bellows, Jose Lima and Steve Miller chair the Roundtable with honorary co-chairs Susan Baker and Y. Ping Sun.

To join the Roundtable, register online now or complete the Roundtable membership form and mail to the address on the form. For young professionals, the Emerging Leaders or Associate Roundtable connects members to policy leaders while offering networking opportunities at a variety of social and informational events.
