What Others are Saying

Leaders of nations, diplomats, dignitaries, authors, experts and education – they're all part of the personal experience as the World Affairs Council connects the world and North Texas. Here's what participants say about their Council experiences:

The World Affairs Council is THE organization in North Texas that regularly puts me in the same room with national and international leaders, policy makers and some of the most fascinating people on Earth. It's like being a Member of Congress, or maybe Secretary of State, for an evening. – Steve Cotton, Managing Partner
Cotton-Adams Financial Group

To be competitive in most industries today, American companies and their executives have to be knowledgeable about current economic, political and cultural developments in foreign countries in which they operate. One of the best ways to be informed is to attend events sponsored by the World Affairs Council - including presentations by Americans who have worked abroad in business, diplomacy and other fields, and ambassadors, business leaders and commentators from abroad. These events are not only informative, but also great opportunities to meet executives from other companies and others who share your interests and may be able to provide advice to you based on their experiences overseas. - Robert W. Kantner, Partner, Jones Day

The city is fortunate to have such a lively and engaging entity to connect us to greater issues with broader perspectives on the world. - Rebecca and Bill Krueger

WAC has transformed my teaching. - Dr. Camille Dean, Southwest Christian Academy

I always love going to speaker events. Not only is it a terrific amount of information, it also covers important topics that will affect my adult life. - Matthew Pratt, Clark High School

There are few organizations in town that cover global events and personalities. And there are fewer that put  them within my reach. The World Affairs Council is the thread that makes my world a smaller place. – Kevin Yu, Meridian: Global Young Professional

I'm going to go back to college and everyone's going to talk about what they did over the summer ... and I'm going to say 'I met two African kings. I met official delegates from Mexico and Nigeria. I learned international protocol. I learned more about the world. I learned how to interact with people from around the world'. - Evan Rosenfeld, Former JWAC student and Council intern

As a high school teacher in a Advanced Social Studies Magnet....the materials have become valuable additions to our curriculum. - Joe Wicker, Dallas ISD
