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.

Full Membership fees are $125 for an Individual or $225 for a Family (two persons at the same address). Membership is limited by the size of the lecture hall and is currently full.

Those wanting to become members for the 2021-2022 season are invited to join as Associate Members ($35 for an Individual, $50 for a Family). Associate Members are eligible for most NCWA programs, one exception is the attendance of the feature presentations, and will automatically become full Members in the order of their original application date as openings occur*. Currently the waiting time is approximately one to three years.

To become an Associate Member, or for any other membership questions, please call (239) 649-3942.

You may apply online to become an Associate Member.

 *Associate Membership - The intent of the Associate Member program is that Associate Members will become Full Members once space in the lecture hall is available and they receive an invitation from NCWA to become Full Members. Their Associate Membership will not be continued beyond this point; this includes participation in activities such as Great Decisions.
