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.
The Council also coordinates the International Visitor Program with the State Department, the International Education Initiative (IEI) with Metroplex students and teachers and Meridian, our club for globally-minded young professionals. Also, as a member-based organization, the Council is proud to have over 3,000 members from North Texas and beyond.
