Mission Statement

The World Affairs Councils of America supports the high-quality programs, educational initiatives, and operational excellence of more than 90 nonprofit, nonpartisan member Councils across the United States. WACA and this nationwide network of World Affairs Councils strive to foster deeper understanding of key global issues and to provide access to leaders and decision-makers so that our communities can better compete, collaborate, and make informed decisions in a complex world.

Description

The World Affairs Councils of America is the largest nonpartisan, non-profit grassroots organization in the United States dedicated to educating and engaging the American public on global issues. Over 500,000 people a year benefit from the network programming, including members and participants.

Today, WACA is dedicated to fostering grassroots understanding and engagement in international affairs and seeks to involve as many citizens as possible in an exchange of ideas, knowledge and understanding of global issues. The national office of the WACA works to develop new program opportunities to distribute to member councils. This includes a variety of national program series, an annual national conference, five flagship programs, Leadership Missions to other countries, and other opportunities. In addition to providing program opportunities, the WACA acts as the central hub for the council network, connecting councils with resources, opportunities, and of course, with each other.
