Create conversations in our community about global affairs and America's role in the world.
A lot is happening in the world around us. Attend our events and see the world through the eyes of those at the fore-front of the news.
Meet business leaders, entrepreneurs & motivated people just like you from Fairfield and Westchester Counties and beyond at our events.
See the world! Cuba, Vietnam, Italy... Just some of the places our members have visited on trips sponsored by member World Affairs Councils.
We are affiliated with World Affairs Councils of America (WACA), with more than 95 affiliate Councils representing 86,000 members nationwide.
