Wow. We did not expect 2020 to go the way it did. It has been a tragic, challenging, and stressful year.
Now, as we look towards 2021, we have a chance to turn the page in some important areas. The election of Joe Biden creates the potential for significant progress on arms control, nonproliferation, and disarmament.
But meaningful and durable changes will not come easily. And the next U.S. administration and other world leaders will need to move quickly to make decisions on a range of issues.
These decisions and outcomes—and the efforts we make to influence them—will shape the international security landscape for years to come
Please start by joining us for our virtual 2020 Annual Meeting on Tuesday, December 1.

Thank you and stay safe,
Daryl G. Kimball,
