WACHH strives to keep members abreast of developments in national interests and international affairs through extensive educational programming and participation in Council-sponsored events. We use a variety of avenues to accomplish this. Each has a slightly different approach but all focus on World Affairs.
Our principal program is the Friday Speaker Series, which usually takes place on the first and third Fridays of each month – October through May. Speakers come from around the globe who are known for their international experience in government, business, military affairs and academia. Please check the program calendar for exact dates and topics. Friday Speaker meetings are held at the First Presbyterian Church. Attendance at the Friday Speaker Series is a primary benefit of joining WACHH. Guests are invited to attend as well(fee).
