Meetings & Programs

Meetings are held once a month from September through June, dates determined by the availability and schedules of our speakers.

During 2020-21, all monthly events will be held remotely via Zoom, with presentations typically beginning at 7 pm.

The Zoom meeting opens at 6:45 pm with 15 minutes available for socializing in breakout rooms where members have the opportunity to meet other members of the Worcester World Affairs Council (WWAC). This is followed by the speaker presentation, with ample time at the end for Q&A. See a list of our Previous Speakers.

In addition to its own meetings, members of the WWAC can take advantage of the many special programs and trips offered by and through the World Affairs Councils of America, which also sponsors an impressive annual conference in Washington DC.
