In my many years of association with Alaska World Affairs Council I have seen and participated in many of the Council's weekly programs. The programs really "Bring the World to Alaska." Guests and members alike come from all age groups and professions to hear personally what guest speakers discuss on a broad range of international and national topics. The Council has developed a strong and widely accepted student participation program and most of the schools in the Anchorage School District participate. The Council's World Quest competitions have been outstanding and produced some very knowledge winners. The goals of the Council incorporate both learning and listening to the world around us. The speaker's list has been impressive and has included presidents from other countries, ambassadors, politicians, successful business leaders all highly qualified in their professions or area of expertise. The Council itself is an active enthusiastic group of residients who truly believe in what they do. And what they do as volunteers is energic, active and meaningful in producing one of the best World Affairs programs in the U.S. This Council is a major non-profit player in our community and contributes greatly to expanding knowledge and the quality of life.
