We could not do this work without you. Members are the cornerstone of World Affairs Council.

Borders are just lines on a map. With your support, our efforts diminish those boundaries by creating international connections, providing foreign affairs discussions, and increasing global thinking of students.


Join Your Global Community

This last year, the council has hosted many exciting events as well as exchange and educational programming such as ONE World – Annual Gala & Global Trivia Competition; Ambassador, Soviet Union, Jack Matlock plus North Korean expert, Evans J.R. Revere; Speaker Series: ‘America Faces its Global Challenges’; and International Education Summit for high school students to discover global careers. Members always receive discounts and often have exclusive access to these and other special events.

Memberships are the most trustworthy funding source for our important international work. Your support of World Affairs Council means schools, organizations, and communities can be reached with programs that inspire global mindsets and create personal connections.

The diversity of the event and content was quite remarkable. More importantly the engagement of the attendees really spoke to the idea of embracing diversity and making community and business leaders realize how important it is to focus on inclusion rather than exclusion in interactions both professional and personal. It was such an interesting group of people that attended the event. The organization stands for everything that is right with Cincinnati and its goals moving forward. It was a pleasure to attend.”
