Meridian Ball

The Meridian Ball is one of the most prestigious annual events in Washington, D.C. Now in its 50th year, this event brings together members of the public and private sector to celebrate Meridian’s ongoing efforts to prepare leaders for a complex global future. The Ball is well-attended by public officials including Cabinet secretaries, members of Congress, prominent media figures, foreign ambassadors, and representatives from the international business and cultural communities. Guests have the option of choosing between an intimate Ambassador-hosted Dinner or the White-Meyer Dinner on Meridian’s campus. Following the dinners, guests from both the Ambassador-hosted Dinners and White-Meyer Dinner gather for dancing, dessert, and conversation at Meridian House.

Earlier in the day, all guests are invited to attend the Meridian Global Leadership Summit at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Building on Meridian’s reputation as a center for global leadership – bringing the right thought leaders and decision makers together in a neutral forum to discuss and address critical global issues – the Summit convenes a cross-section of international and domestic policy makers, corporate and diplomatic leaders, academics, and members of the media to explore more efficient, effective ways to address global economic and social challenges.
