Join us for an in-person, private meet and greet preceded by a public conversation with Admiral Craig Faller, former Commander of US Southern Command and new Atlantic Council Distinguished Fellow, on Tuesday, March 8 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. (ET) at the Atlantic Council headquarters located at 1030 15th Street NW, 12th floor, Washington, DC.

Admiral Faller will speak publicly from 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the global and Latin America-specific implications of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine before an exclusive, in-person studio audience transmitted via zoom and other platforms. Following that conversation, we invite you to stay and join us for a 45-minute informal meet and greet with light refreshments served.

The Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and its Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security are honored to welcome Admiral Faller as a Distinguished Fellow at this pivotal moment for US and global national security. As a Distinguished Fellow, Admiral Faller will bring decades of global national-security leadership experience to shape conversations and enhance understanding around current and future global security challenges, with a particular emphasis on the implications for Latin America and the Caribbean. From 2018 to 2021, Admiral Faller commanded United States Southern Command in Miami, Florida. Among other roles, he also served as the senior military assistant to Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis.
