World Affairs Council Welcomes New Program and Development Director
NASHVILLE – The World Affairs Council announced Mr. Logan Monday joined the staff of Tennessee’s sole nonprofit educational association dedicated to boosting global literacy, as the Director of Programs and Development. Monday will lead the Council’s efforts to develop global affairs awareness through community and educational outreach programs and will work with members, corporations and donors to sustain those important programs.
Mr. Monday, a native of Lenoir City, Tennessee, served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Macedonia for three years prior to joining the Council. In Macedonia he taught K-9 classes, mentored a young men’s leadership project and coordinated activities at a European business and leadership camp. Monday also worked as a Capitol Hill intern and as an ESL instructor in Gwangju, South Korea after graduating in 2007 from the University of Tennessee.
The addition of Monday to the World Affairs Council staff comes at a key moment in the growth of the organization which has been 100% volunteer staffed since its founding. “We’re extremely pleased to welcome Logan to the World Affairs Council,” said President Patrick Ryan. “He brings a special combination of organization management skills and abilities along with world-class leadership experience earned as a Peace Corps Volunteer.” Ryan added, “Logan comes on board as the World Affairs Council is reaching a new level of development in our mission to bring global literacy programs to the community — through the tremendous support from Belmont University and the expansion of our staff.”
The Council was founded in Cookeville in 2007 to bring global affairs awareness programs and resources to the region. It relocated to Nashville in 2012 after developing a partnership with the Belmont University Center for International Business. The World Affairs Council is one of 95 grassroots, nonpartisan groups around the country that seek to promote international awareness, understanding and connections and to prepare young people to thrive in an increasingly complex and connected world.
“The Tennessee World Affairs Council filled a void in the public discourse on America’s relationships with the world and the impact of global affairs on our security and prosperity,” according to Ryan, adding, “We’re conscious of the data that show Americans’ global understanding doesn’t meet the responsibilities we have as citizens of a country with the United States’ standing in the world.” Ryan said, “That’s why we’re very pleased that Logan has joined us in his important role and confident that with his leadership the Council will reach further into the community with important global affairs programs.”
The World Affairs Council office is at 1513 Compton Avenue in Nashville, near the Belmont main campus. Monday is looking forward to college interns and volunteers joining the Council’s team and he will be reaching out to new members, corporate sponsors and those who can add the Council to their charity giving plans.
The Tennessee World Affairs Council is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit. It is a nonpartisan educational charity that welcomes your support. The World Affairs Council seeks a well-informed community that thinks critically about the world and the impact of global events.
