British-American Parliamentary Group Luncheon

July 20, 2022

In partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), British parliamentarians (MP) are welcomed to the U.S. to take part in an intensive ten-day exchange that includes Congressional appointments in Washington, several days of shadowing a Member of Congress in their home district, and a closing session in Boston that ties their experiences together while learning about the functions of local and state government. These exchanges seek primarily to strengthen U.S.-U.K. relations and educate parliamentarians on the U.S. federalist system of government; in addition, the program offers the opportunity for participants to examine the role of non-governmental players in the formation of domestic and foreign policy. Some notable previous members of the British-American Parliamentary Group include Former Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom Margaret Thatcher, Theresa May, and Tony Blair.

This program is open to members of the Meridian Corporate Council. If you have any questions, please reach out to Amanda Kalyan at
