A member of the World Affairs Council of America, the World Affairs Council of Connecticut (WACCT) was founded in 1924 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that educates the public on global affairs and provides open dialogue on contemporary issues. With an individual membership, ponderers can be challenged with important questions surrounding the direction of the world, from how to solve the impending water crisis to what television channel to project onto the moon. Each member gains instant access to the WACCT's excellent lineup of programs, including the Executive Forum series, the Global Women's Issues Forum, and a lecture series. Such internationally renowned past keynotes have included former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, NBC news anchor Ann Curry, and former secretary of state Dr. Henry Kissinger.
