National WAC Events/Travel
World Affairs Council of America (WACA)
The national association of world affairs councils has its headquarters in Washington DC. In addition to providing support for the nearly 100 regional councils, it offers an annual conference in the late fall on critical topics featuring lawmakers, diplomats, business leaders, and directors of non governmental agencies. Attendees learn the backstory and the important details on issues and events that the news often covers only superficially. Any WAC member may attend the conference.
