The Council, formed in 1985 as the National Interest Forum, joined the World Affairs Councils of America in 1995. The World Affairs Councils of America is a nonprofit grassroots organization dedicated to educating and engaging Americans on global issues. With more than 90 councils across 40 states reaching more than half a million people a year, it is the largest organization of its kind in the U.S.
The Council has grown from a small organization sponsoring a modest speaker program, held in members’ homes, to reaching thousands of individuals every year through an acclaimed speaker series, educational programming, special events and an expanding network of young professionals.
