To develop our future world leaders through engagement in international affairs.
The WACD hopes to promote international diplomacy through its educational outreach to Coachella Valley adults and high school students, and thus improve the quality of life for all.
It is a distinct pleasure to serve for a second season as President of the World Affairs Council of the Desert. Prior to the 2012-2013 season, we set out to accomplish some ambitious goals. They were to revise our communications systems, streamline our financial management and operational procedures, and additionally to improve our administration and website function. I am pleased to say we have accomplished these goals through the dedication of our council’s officers and board of directors. We will continue to build on our progress in these areas during the new season, while also seeking to enhance our members’ experience on every level.
Our charitable arm, the Academic WorldQuest, will remain our primary community outreach in 2013-2014. We are excited about the potential for expanding this vital part of our organization that so effectively offers our local youth the opportunity to expand and deepen their understanding of global events, thus empowering our future leaders.
We have already confirmed dates and speakers for 2013-2014 dinner/speaker program. It promises to be a memorable lineup during which you will experience the quality of experts you have come to expect from us, addressing just-from-the-headlines topics with the unique perspectives that only true insiders can provide.
