Special Invitation: Arms Control Association Annual Meeting

Want to attend? Special discount available for YPFP members.

Over the decades, arms control agreements have limited and reduced arsenals, curbed the spread of nuclear weapons, and halted testing by all but one state. But today, that disarmament process has stalled.

The Arms Control Association is excited to partner this year with YPFP as a co-host of their post-event reception, which aims to connect the next generation of global nonproliferation leaders. Through this partnership, we are also able to offer a discounted rate ($50 instead of $65!) for YPFP members who wish to attend the June 2 annual meeting policy conference in addition to or instead of the evening reception.

Topics to be discussed at the meeting include:


  • President Donald Trump wants to “expand” the U.S. nuclear capacity and has denounced the New START agreement;
  • Russia has deployed ground-based cruise missiles in violation of the INF Treaty;
  • Hard-liners in Washington and Tehran are working to undermine the 2015 Iran nuclear deal; and
  • North Korea continues to flaunt international law while improving its nuclear and missile capabilities.
