World Affairs Councils of America
Great Decisions, Travel the World, and World in Transition.
Every year, the nation-wide network of World Affairs Councils collectively conducts more than 1200 programs in communities and cities across the nation. Each council sets its own calendar and programs. The WACA offers a number of programs every year, including our annual National Conference, national program series, Leadership Missions, and special programs. It also acts as a distribution center for five national flagship programs: Academic World Quest, It’s Your World!
Each year, WACA negotiates subscription discounts with various publications for the Council network. This benefit is unique to WACA and serves as a reminder of the value of the national network. While the list of the confirmed discounts will continue to grow, we can announce today special discounts from:
- Foreign Affairs – Click here to get 30% a subscription for Foreign Affairs Plus
- World Politics Review – Click here to get full individual access for just $1 for the first three months, then only $48.50 for the first full year after that–50% off WPR’s standard rate.
- Project Syndicate – Click here to receive 30% off a Project Syndicate Digital or Project Syndicate Digital Plus subscription when using the code WACA2024.
Sign up to be the first to hear about upcoming events at member councils across the country, WACA office hours and roundtables for council-to-council development, member news and job opportunities, and more – all to help you promote nonpartisan global conversations and events from wherever you are.
Many of our WACA affiliates offer travel programs to cooperating councils, just another benefit of a WACU membership. The trips offer all the highlights of touring, as well as access to political leaders and local experts for behind the scenes briefings not available to most tourists. Many WACA tours feature Council leaders who are experts in their fields of diplomacy, journalism or academia to create added-value experiences. And, perhaps most importantly, travelers become Citizen Diplomats with an opportunity to ‘meet the people’ to foster the dynamic exchange of international cultures and ideas.
