The UIS/WSEC Ambassador Series

Bringing World Leaders to Springfield

The Ambassador Series features lunch meetings that bring Springfield-area residents face-to-face with ambassadors from around the world. The world leaders share business, economic, and political insights.  A spirited question-and-answer period follows each presentation.

WSEC/PBS Springfield also videotapes all programs for broadcast on its network and for other PBS Ambassador to US from Vietnamstations.
