ENGAGE

Our “World @ Home” Monthly Speaker Series is the local forum to directly engage international diplomats on a variety of international issues. Each month, we highlight a topic affecting our world and feature a diplomat, expert, policy maker, journalist and /or activist who “brings home” the relevance of that topic to our local community. Through this program, we stimulate dialogue between diverse sectors of our community, and in the process, inform our local citizenry on how to address and engage with these global issues in a local context. Past WAC speakers include Mikhail Gorbachev, Colin Powell, Christiane Amanpour, John Sculley, Malcolm Nance, as well as numerous ambassadors, academics and diplomats.

It is our mission to inform and inspire our community to think and act globally. Thus,  in the fall of 2014 we reorganized our membership structure to maximize the value of this program – and others – for our community. To reap the most this program has to offer, please review the membership levels listed below and consider joining the World Affairs Council of Kentucky and Southern Indiana today!

We are a monthly programming organization with regular talks featuring national and international experts on global topics. Some key points about our membership levels:

  • Anyone who joins our email list will be a “Network Member” and will receive our monthly e-newsletters
  • Free or discounted attendance to our monthly events are available for Student Backpacker*, World Traveler and Global Leader members; there’s no more hassle of having to purchase tickets for each event, just let us know if you plan to attend
  • Special reception opportunities and benefits will be available to our World Traveler and Global Leader members
