These hallmark "Inside" tours are resource rich, featuring private briefings and expert lecturers.  Visit www.wacphila.org for information on upcoming tours.  Forum Board Secretary Marianne Drost and Forum Member Maureen Gorman recently traveled to Iran.  If you would like to, there are three dates from which to choose in 2015!
