The non-profit, nonpartisan Council was established in 1951 in Dallas and in 1961 in Fort Worth to educate citizens on the crucial issues of international affairs and foreign policy. In 2006, the two Councils unified to create a strong regional organization. Today, the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth presents more than 80 programs a year that enlighten and entertain North Texans.
We have hosted heads of state and government, scores of ministerial- and secretarial-level dignitaries, opposition leaders of an equivalent level, and literally thousands of other diplomats, politicians, military leaders, business pioneers, scientists and outstanding figures in the arts. Whether your interest is international business, culture, politics or foreign policy, the Council offers programs to broaden your horizons. Our members sit down with today's global newsmakers and gain the insight, understanding and information needed to keep up to date on international affairs.
