Let me introduce you to one more resource from your World Affairs Council. On the heels of last week’s World Affairs Councils of America marathon of virtual events delivered by the nationwide network of councils, CxCamplified.com, we’re pleased to introduce a summary of council digital programs on tap for this week. Kudos to the World Affairs Councils of America office for keeping the network informed..
Most of these programs from network councils are free (and welcome members and friends from sister councils), some may ask a small donation. Most are virtual replacements for in-person events at world affairs councils.
We will put together a weekly list for you on an interim basis. If it’s helpful to your understanding of what’s going on in the world please let us know and we’ll add it to our regular calendar of global affairs awareness posts, emails and social media.
Enjoy and let us know what you think!
p.s. Don’t forget to signup for our Two for Tuesday Webinars tomorrow.
