What a year of change 2015 has been for the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire! From hosting our first ever full day summit in August, to reaching new milestones in our international visitor leadership program, it seems just like yesterday when we were planning for our exciting lineup of spring events, like the forum with the Editor of Foreign Policy magazine.
As we say goodbye to our 61st year of operation, we are looking ahead to many more great years to come. The Council is working hard to create unique and interesting programs to give you insight and information about foreign affairs.
Without a doubt, our Diplomacy Begins Here Summit, held in August, was a shining moment for the Council. Over 225 people attended events to learn about how New England is connected to the world and how to become more involved in and benefit from international exchange programs. The CEO of Honest Tea, Seth Goldman, speaking on how his business builds goodwill for the US through their international dealings, was a highlight of the summit.
With your help, we can provide more opportunities for you and others to engage with the world:
- More public programs that take you beyond the headlines with leading thinkers in foreign policy;
- More connections with emerging international leaders to exchange best practices on issues such as democracy, sustainability and human rights; and
- Better opportunities for local students and teachers to learn and teach about world affairs through hands-on experiences through Academic World Quest and the Model United Nations.
Please consider making an Annual Fund gift today! This will allow us to continue to bring top level speakers to NH, creating a more informed citizenry.
Thank you so much for your continued support and we appreciate all you have given over the years. The strength of this organization truly lives within people like you.
~With gratitude, Steve Solomon, President
