National Security Forum

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved our monthly breakfast Forums online to Zoom.   Members are able to actively participate in our monthly virtual Forums, interacting with speakers directly.  Non-members can view the videos of the Forums once they are posted.

Since we have gone online, we have been able to expand the diversity of our speakers, interacting with people who won’t fly to Reno for a day, but will spend an hour online!  While we hope to go back to in-person Forums soon, we may continue to offer online Forums with subject matter experts from around the world!


The National Security Forum (NSF) is a non-partisan, educational, nonprofit organization that brings expert speakers from around the U.S. to talk about national and international security, domestic and foreign terrorism, economic and financial threats, the safety of our food and water supply, energy policy, electrical grid stability, and a variety of other topics that affect all Americans.
