You are invited to join the
Arter-Rowland National Security Forum

The Arter-Rowland National Security Forum (ARNSF) is led by the CGSC Foundation’s Simons Center and is an exclusive professional information sharing and networking forum for senior executives.

Members of the Forum and their guests meet periodically at guest speaker events in downtown Kansas City. National and regional guest speakers representing all elements of national power (Diplomatic, Informational, Military and Economic) highlight the meetings. The Forum is nonpartisan, but elected government officials may present from time to time.

The Forum is named after Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Robert Arter, Founding Chairman of the CGSC Foundation, and Mr. Landon Rowland, the Foundation’s first major donor who was well-known in Kansas City for his keen interest in national security issues and his leadership in business and philanthropy.

The ARNSF is a program of the CGSC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit corporation.

We are accepting annual memberships for $1,000.

Please fill out the form below to join today.

We look forward to interacting with you as a member
and learning together about issues of importance to our nation.
