Since 1992, the National Council's Annual Arab-U.S. Policymakers Conference has gathered internationally renowned specialists to analyze, discuss, and debate issues of over-arching importance to the American and Arab people's needs, concerns, interests, and key foreign policy objectives. Over two-days, Arab and American leaders from government, the military, business, and academe share privileged information, insight, and recommendations that are vitally important to the definition of issues, the ordering of priorities, and the direction of policy formulation and implementation in American and Arab governments alike.

The 26th Arab-U.S. Policymakers Conference is scheduled for October 18-19, 2017, at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center in Washington, DC. The conference will again provide attendees with two-days of shared ideas, intense discussions and debate, and extensive networking.
