Panetta Lecture Series


Secretary Leon Panetta

Each spring, Secretary Panetta moderates the Panetta Institute’s highly acclaimed lecture series that brings national leaders, policy experts and journalists to the Monterey Peninsula. The theme for the 2017 Lecture Series was The Trump Presidency and the Future of America.

“Seeing qualified professionals discussing the issues of the day was both eye-opening and educational.”
