Chuck Montgomery, a Senior Managing Attorney for MidAmerican Energy Company (a Berkshire Hathaway company), has served as a board member for:  V.O.I.C.E.S. (Hmong refugee resettlement), the Iowa Council for International Understanding, the U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy, and PYXERA Global.  This service has fired Chuck’s passion for citizen diplomacy and led to involvement in projects like the Young Arab Business Fellows program (introducing young Arab business people to the U.S.), service on a State Department fact-finding mission to Iraq, ongoing service on the U.S.-Pakistan Leadership Forum (improving understanding through joint projects in Pakistan), and advocacy for citizen diplomacy at the U.N.’s Alliance of Civilizations conference in Doha.

Chuck believes in the transformative power of citizen diplomacy as illustrated in Chinese President Xi’s emotional 2012 return visit to Muscatine, Iowa, where he had been warmly received, in 1985, as a lower-level agricultural official.
