The Meridian Ball

One of the most prestigious annual events in Washington, D.C. that brings together members of the public and private sector to celebrate Meridian’s ongoing efforts to prepare leaders for a complex global future.

Now in its 55th year, the Ball is known for intimate Ambassador-hosted dinners, in addition to a dinner hosted by Meridian at its White-Meyer House. Following dinner, all guests gather for dancing, dessert, and dialogue at Meridian House, an architectural treasure listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Traditionally held in October, the Ball plays a key role in helping Meridian generate awareness of and support for its mission. Proceeds from the Ball support Meridian’s global leadership exchanges, cultural activities, conferences, and seminars.
