WACA National Board Election
Roman Popadiuk, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine with more than three decades of experience in foreign service, has been elected Chairman of the National Board of Directors of the World Affairs Councils of America. A principal at Morgan Lewis Consulting, he formerly was executive director of the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation at Texas A&M University.

Council President and CEO James N. Falk was a member of the WACA selection committee.

Presidential Candidates
With the entry of former Texas Gov. Rick Perry into the field of candidates for presidential nominations, the non-partisan World Affairs Council has now hosted appearances by three men with White House ambitions: Gov. Perry, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and physician and author Dr. Ben Carson.

The Council has extended invitations to potential or announced presidential candidates to appear at open-to-the-public Presidential Candidate Forums during the 2015-16 campaign season. The Council believes part of its mission is to provide an opportunity to examine the strategies, proposals and opinions of people who seek the highest office in the nation.

Because the Forums are a public service, members and non-members will pay the same price to hear potential presidents discuss their positions and views on domestic and foreign policy.
