The World Affairs Council of Atlanta is the premier convener on international topics that affect Atlanta and the world.
Our mission is to provide a forum for dialogue, a source of expertise, and an engine for research on the international issues that matter to Atlanta. We are a non-partisan, membership and grant supported organization dedicated to enhancing our community’s understanding of the world – locally, nationally, and globally.
Become an individual or corporate member of the council today to enhance your and your employees’ understanding of the world – locally, nationally, and globally. Memberships sustain the council and allow it to offer unique programming on international topics that affect Atlanta and the world.
Connect with fellow council members at events to broaden your network of globally minded Atlantans then stay up-to-date through social media. Follow us on Twitter and join our LinkedIn and Facebook groups to stay connected with other members and expand your networks between council programs. Council programs give members an opportunity to engage local, national, and international leaders and fellow members in a dialogue leading to a greater understanding of the international issues that affect our community and provide a variety of perspectives and innovative ways of thinking about pressing global topics.
