The Southeast Connecticut World Affairs Council, Inc. (SECWAC), sponsors a Speakers Series of 8 to 10 meetings annually. We provide a forum for nonpartisan, non-advocacy dialogue between our members, U.S. policy makers, and other experts on foreign relations.
We are committed to hosting the widest possible range of views, while advocating none. By maintaining a reputation for impartiality, we facilitate serious and civil debates and discussion on issues that bear directly on the USA’s vital global interests.
SECWAC dates back to 1999. We are a regional membership organization and are a member council of the World Affairs Councils of America (WACA). WACA assists us in identifying quality foreign affairs speakers for lectures and panel discussions at our meetings.
