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

Members of the Naples Council on World Affairs are entitled to:

  • Attend the feature presentations during the November to April season.
  • Sign up for Great Decisions (weekly small group discussions January to March).
  • Receive invitations to additional lectures and special events.
  • View videos of lectures on the website.
  • Participate in a variety of programs supporting students in Collier and Lee Counties, including a strong Model UN competition every spring in partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University, local competitions in middle and high schools that test students' knowledge of global affairs, scholarships for summer study at U.S. and international programs that provide a taste of careers in international relations and diplomacy, and much more.
There are plenty of opportunities in NCWA to make a difference in areas of special interest to you.

Full 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 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, and there is no waiting list. 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.

Associate Memberships are not currently available.
