What is the likelihood a “Brexit” will occur? What would the economic and political future of the European Union look like without the United Kingdom? What type of precedent does this vote set for the rest of Europe? These questions and others come to mind as Britain prepares for a public referendum on June 23rd that will determine its fate as a member of the European Union.

Join us for a timely luncheon discussion on the different scenarios ahead for Europe and the ramifications of this vote on a global level.
