Great Decisions

The impact of COVID-19 is having a major effect on our national and local institutions. Given the strong recommendations from our health experts the Board of the Williamsburg League of Women Voters and the Great Decision’s leadership team have reached the decision to cancel our remaining Great Decision’s programs. We do this with great reluctance, but recognize it is the responsible thing to do.

We intend to provide our participants with the opportunity for substantive engagement with these topics after this crisis using the DVD/discussion format, which has been successful in the past.

Check out the full list of topics from past Great Decisions, 2020 and 2019.

We sponsor a series of eight lectures on foreign affairs coordinated with the Williamsburg Regional Library. The lecture topics are chosen by the Foreign Policy Association and held on Tuesday mornings in February and March.

We serve refreshments beginning at 9:45 am and the lecture begins at 10:30. Speakers are experts on the topics and usually come from Virginia or the Washington, DC/New York areas.

James City County recorded four of 2020’s Great Decisions lectures, and you can watch them from their Youtube channel.
