A Message from the President

Greg Hudson  

Welcome to the Naples Council on World Affairs (NCWA), serving the southwest coast of Florida. We are a member of the World Affairs Councils of America,and our mission is "to educate, inspire and engage our community in international affairs and critical global issues."

NCWA is a non-profit and non-partisan organization of over 2500 members. Each year, from November to April, we feature a series of ten lectures by distinguished scholars and statesmen. As opportunities arise, additional lectures and special activities are offered during the season. One quarter of our members participate in weekly discussion groups using the Great Decisions material from the Foreign Policy Association. You will find detailed descriptions of each of these member programs on this website. If you would like to inquire about membership, see the Membership section. Applications can be made by telephone or online.

The Board of Directors of NCWA believes that an important part of our mission is to reach out to students in our community. We do this through a number of programs detailed on this website, including speakers at local high schools, Model United Nations, Academic WorldQuest competitions, summer travel and educational opportunities. A significant portion of these outreach activities are supported by generous tax-deductible contributions from members.

Occasionally, the Council has reached beyond our community to meet a specific need, sometimes in a remote corner of the world. Our Village Assistance Program has provided modest funding to eleven projects during the past decade. 

There is a lot going on in the various programs of NCWA, including many avenues for volunteer participation. Those whose interest in foreign affairs and global issues calls them to get more involved, please take the time to look through the pages of this website that describe in more detail each program and the opportunities to participate. You may find just the opportunity you have been looking for.
