The World Affairs Council of Albuquerque presents about ten speaker programs each year, usually as dinner discussions. Our expert speakers provide critical insight into current international affairs, as well as thoughtful analysis of the most pressing foreign policy issues facing the United States at home and abroad. Members are encouraged to interact with the speaker before the presentation and during the question and answer period.
Our members have reciprocal membership benefits with the Santa Fe World Affairs Forum, Santa Fe Council on International Relations and links to other community organizations.
