The Alexander Hamilton Society (AHS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Cherise Britt as its new Program Manager, effective immediately. Founded in 2010, AHS is a non-profit, non-partisan, national organization that fosters constructive debate on basic principles and contemporary issues in American foreign, economic, and national security policy. AHS members share a conviction, rooted in the history of the last century, that the world is a better, safer, and more prosperous place when the United States is willing and able to lead. Members take seriously the commitment to maintaining the moral authority and material strength on which that leadership rests.
Cherise will be responsible for managing AHS's national network of chapters and communications. She will be the primary point of contact for all students, advisers, and speakers. As program manager, she will oversee all chapter event planning processes and lead the planning for our national events, including the annual student leadership conference. Over the next few weeks, she will be reaching out to chapter leaders to introduce herself to the broader AHS community. She can be reached directly at Cbritt@Hamsoc.org and 202-559-7389.
Cherise graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Government and International Politics where she was treasurer and vice president of the AHS Chapter. Previously, she was an analyst at the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism where she worked on projects involving Boko Haram's activities in Cameroon, the Multinational Joint Task Force to fight transnational terrorism in West Africa and other projects tracking weapon exchanges in parts of South and East Asia. She was also a 2015 participant in the Hertog War Studies Program at the Institute for the Study of War and has also recently participated in Hertog Advanced Programs on Lessons from the Cold War and Civil-Military Relations. During her spare time, Cherise works on the memoirs of a WWII combat veteran. Cherise has a track record of professionalism and strong organizational skills, which will be invaluable in meeting AHS's goals and objectives. Her appointment will immeasurably strengthen the national office's ability to meet the needs of our members and expand our programming.
AHS currently has over 50 student-led chapters on college campuses nationwide, as well as professional chapters in New York and Washington, DC. Hamilton Society chapters sponsor debates and host speakers who ensure that students are exposed to a broader range of responsible opinions on the issues of the day. Through its campus programming and professional development opportunities, AHS supports students as they pursue careers in U.S. foreign policy. Cherise is uniquely suited to contribute to this mission, and I know that she looks forward to working with all of you to advance the AHS cause.
