The Juneau World Affairs Council (JWAC) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), non-partisan membership organization. Our goal is to encourage dialog and understanding of important international, economic, political and social issues through expert presentation, informed discussion, and other educational activities.
In pursuit of this goal, JWAC organizes presentations, lectures and panel discussions for the benefit of our members and the public. Speakers have included ambassadors, professors, business leaders, politicians, explorers, activists and more.
The majority of JWAC's presentations are free of charge and everyone is encouraged to attend. JWAC is funded by members' dues and contributions from the community. All work in the organization is performed by its members and a volunteer board of directors.
