The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth

The mission of the nonprofit, nonpartisan World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth is to educate and engage the local community in national and international affairs. 

The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth is a 501(c)(3) organization.

The Council has been educating North Texans on global affairs since 1951. Today, it serves as a gateway to the world for the region, offering an impressive range of programs and events for the public and its nearly 4,000 members. The Council presents around 90+ programs annually, primarily focusing on the international aspects of business, politics, culture and foreign policy. Through the Global Young Leaders education program, the Council takes international education directly into North Texas schools. Additionally, it coordinates visits to North Texas of delegations and leaders from around the world through the International Visitor Program and the City of Dallas Office of Protocol.

Our Annual Membership Meeting is held each year in conjunction with our Open House, which takes place in November or December. Our 2020 annual report is available to view or download.
