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. 

RECIPROCITY: The World Affairs Forum extends an invitation to members of other councils when they are visiting Fairfield (CT) or Westchester (NY) counties to attend our events. Please consult our upcoming events calendar or contact our office if you are interested in attending our programs. Members of other councils may attend our events at member pricing. We would be delighted to have you join us.                     

 

JOIN THE aMBASSADORS' ROUNDTABLE SERIES FOR THE 2015-16 SEASON!!

 

                                                       

 

JOIN THE AMBASSADOR'S ROUNDTABLE!

 

Consider joining the Ambassadors’ Roundtable (AR) Series of the Forum for 2015-2016! During the coming season there will be a total of eight programs at the Stamford Yacht Club- 4 breakfasts, one “after work”, 2 dinners and one luncheon- all featuring a variety of excellent speakers.

 

I have been an AR member for about 4 years, and wonder why I didn't join sooner. The Ambassador's Roundtable has a finger on the pulse of international affairs. There's no other forum that reliably delivers high-caliber speakers year-round on a wide range of international topics. The depth and breadth of the speaker options ranges from academics and authors to ambassadors and other government officials who offer insiders' views of complicated foreign relations. Set at the beautiful Stamford Yacht Club, I can't think of a more welcoming space to enjoy a meal and learn about pressing world issues than the Ambassador's Roundtable lectures offered by the World Affairs Forum.

                                                                                        - An AR Member 

 

AR members may also attend the 4 Forum Series programs at the Ferguson Library at no additional cost. And, as a special benefit, an AR membership includes 2 free guest passes (a $60 value) to an AR breakfast during the
coming season.

 

Contact the Forum Office for an Application.
