THE SEDONA FORUM is the McCain Institute’s annual, high-level gathering of national and international leaders held each spring at the Enchantment Resort in the red rock country of Sedona, Arizona. Starting from the assumption of character-driven leadership and core democratic values, The Sedona Forum convenes thought-leaders, decisionmakers, activists and diverse experts to discuss approaches and solutions to real-world problems.
Past speakers have included Vice President Joe Biden; former Prime Minister Tony Blair; Director of National Intelligence James Clapper; Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats; CBS News Correspondent John Dickerson; Actor and Thorn Co-Founder Ashton Kutcher; Secretary of Defense James Mattis; National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster; CIA Director Mike Pompeo; CEOs from GE, Chevron, Walmart-USA, Fedex, Freeport McMoRan and Hewlett Packard; and presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers, experts and civil society leaders from around the world.
Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Sedona Forum. The Sedona Forum 2021 will take place at the Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Ariz. on April 30 – May 2. The Forum is an invitation-only event.
