Members of the Worcester World Affairs Council (WWAC) pay an annual fee that covers the cost of the annual series of speakers. The membership fee includes a regular rate for one person and reduced rates for categories such a dual membership for two people at the same address and student members. Each event with a speaker is preceded by a social time and in-person events include a meal for which there is a separate fee. The current membership rates are available under Plans and Pricing. These plans will be updated for 2022-23.
The rates during 2021-22 are reduced to reflect the format of remote and hybrid meetings this year. When in-person meetings resume, the hybrid format may include in-person or remote speakers, and in-person or remote attendance. Those attending in person pay for their own meals.
In addition to its own meetings, members of the WWAC can take advantage of the many programs, subscriptions and study journeys offered by and through the World Affairs Councils of America, which also sponsors an impressive annual conference in Washington DC. In addition, members are eligible to participate in the Travel the World programs offered by the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and cooperating Councils.
The Worcester World Affairs Council underwrites a number of complimentary memberships for college students at universities in Worcester. Students are nominated by university representatives. Students have the opportunity to meet the speakers in advance, enjoy the meals, attend the presentation, and contribute to the discussion.
