Members and Membership

Welcome! We are pleased that you are looking into information about membership in the Naples Council on World Affairs!

Membership Chair

As a member, you will have a wide variety of ways to engage your interests, make a difference by volunteering if you so choose, and make new friends with similar interests. We are nonpartisan and focused on issues in a friendly environment. 

We offer an annual series of lectures on international affairs and foreign policy by distinguished experts, small discussion groups whose topics parallel the lecture topics, and a variety of strong programs that support our local students and teachers. Many of the students who participate in our programs go on to careers in international affairs or find ways to use the valuable background they have gained from NCWA programs to in the careers they choose.

We are a volunteer driven 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of almost 1,800 members who have found there are plenty of opportunities in NCWA to make a difference in the Southwest Florida community. 

Finally, it's a great place to develop friendships with people with common interests. And, we love to have fun in everything we do!

Membership annual fees are $140 for an Individual or $250 for a Family (two persons at the same address). Membership is limited by the size of the lecture hall. We provide afternoon and evening sessions of each of ten lectures by experts in their respective fields during our season from October or November through March, as well as offer their presentations via livestream and by video archives. Many members have opportunities for personal interaction with our guest lecturers.

Membership renewal and enrollment of new members -- and enrollment in our Great Decisions program of 25 groups, which runs for eight weeks from January into March -- is currently open. The combination of our lecture and Great Decisions programs provides a synergy that gives members deep background into rapidly changing foreign affairs that affect all Americans.
