David Abney“For the last three years, business leaders, diplomats and geo-political experts have come to the council to share their perspective on domestic and international challenges and opportunities. There is no question that we live in an age of global interdependence. Because of our commercial connections, the fate and fortune of our city is very much intertwined with the global economy. In a very tangible sense, the World Affairs Council of Atlanta is the glue that binds us to this global community.”
– David Abney, chairman of the World Affairs Council of Atlanta
