The Meridian: Young Professionals (MYP) program tailors dynamic and enlightening events for World Affairs Council members in their 20s and 30s (at all levels of membership). Meridian members come from all professions and backgrounds but share a common interest in international topics – business, culture, politics, economics, and current events. The World Affairs Council is dedicated to investing in and engaging a generation of future leaders and inspiring them to support international opportunities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, ultimately building a network of other globally-minded young leaders.

In addition to unique membership benefits, MYP members will enjoy exclusive events designed for early-career networking, professional development, and community engagement with other young professionals.
