About the New Frontier Network

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the New Frontier Network at the John F. Kennedy Library. Our membership represents a range of personal, professional, and political diversity, and convenes people united by our shared admiration for the example President Kennedy set for leadership, public service and civic engagement.   

New Frontier Network members have a unique connection to the John F. Kennedy Library. We help support the Library’s mission of promoting President Kennedy’s legacy through educational programs that encourage civic engagement, and produce interesting and exciting programs that bring us and the public together around the issues that are important to our generation and the leaders we believe exemplify service for the greater good. And most importantly, we serve as ambassadors of the Library and the legacy it represents in our communities. Through doing this, members also have the opportunity to be part of a network that help each of us succeed in the professional and civic work we do every day.    

Please join us at our next New Frontier Network event to meet new people, reconnect with those you may know, and engage in conversation around the issues and ideas that you care about the most.    

To learn more and to receive an invitation to the next New Frontier Network event, please contact Maggie Hayden Bramley at margaret.bramley@jfklfoundation.org or (617) 435-8231. 

We look forward to seeing you and including you in the New Frontier Network.
