Why Become a Corporate Member?
A Corporate membership with the World Affairs Council enables your company to interact with and learn from some of the most respected thought leaders on global issues as well as network with other professionals.
A membership with the Council elevates your company’s visibility in the local international affairs community while providing support to World Affairs Council programming in the community. A key benefit for your company is all employees receive the member rate at all monthly programs. These events provide an opportunity to ask important questions that are relevant to your business and to participate in the exchange of ideas with other business leaders.

Corporate Sponsorships offer companies a competitive edge to thrive in the global economy. Investing in the WACOC demonstrates your company’s commitment to global engagement, and increases your network and capacity for international impact. We offer opportunities to interact with the world leaders, senior government, military and intelligence officials, prominent authors, academics, philanthropists, and corporate executives whom we host during year-round programming. You can attend “off the record” briefings with CEOs and ambassadors; join delegations to engage national and foreign officials about your company’s next big investment; and attend, host or prominently feature your company among other global brands at events and conferences.
