Election 2016 Political Roundtable: A Week to Week Special

It's a special edition of our political roundtable. We'll gather local experts for commentary on the candidates, referenda and issues of concern to the South Bay, and we'll take a look at statewide and national campaigns.

We'll explore the biggest, most controversial, and sometimes the surprising political issues with expert commentary by panelists who are smart, are civil, and have a good sense of humor. Join our panelists for informative and engaging commentary on political and other major news, audience discussion of the week’s events, and our live news quiz! 

And come early before the program to meet other smart and engaged individuals and discuss the news over refreshments at our member social (open to all attendees). 


This program is sponsored by the Applied Materials Foundation.
