Who We Are

The World Affairs Council of Hilton Head (WACHH) is a forum on international affairs and American interests throughout the world with more than 950 members drawn from across Beaufort and Jasper Counties, SC. The Board of Directors and membership include former academics, diplomats, business executives, authors and government service personnel.

WACHH meets from October through May on the first and third Fridays of each month, except for December and May when we meet on the first Friday only.  We meet in the sanctuary of the First Presbyterian Church on Wm. Hilton Parkway. Members are invited to arrive for coffee at 9:00 in the church coffee shop and asked to be seated by 9:50 for the meeting which begins promptly at 10:00 AM. Member’s questions follow immediately after the presentation and the meeting is adjourned by 11:30 AM.

The World Affairs Council of Hilton Head is a  501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As a testament to the commitment of our membership we are the largest World Affairs Council of America affiliate financed solely by membership dues and voluntary contributions.
