TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH THE WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL OF PHILADELPHIA

The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia has offered tours to its members and to cooperating councils, including the World Affairs Forum, for more than 30 years.  Trips offer all the highlights of touring, as well as access to political leaders and local experts for behind the scenes briefings that make these trips unique. 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!


RECIPROCITY: The World Affairs Forum extends an invitation
