The Friday Speaker Series, our principal program, usually takes place on the first and third Fridays of each month at the First Presbyterian Church – October through May. Speakers come from around the globe who are known for their international experience in government, business, military affairs and academia. International speakers are supported by our Global Speakers Program. Attendance at the Friday Speaker Series is a primary benefit of joining WACHH. Guests are invited to attend as well (see Guest Policy).
COVID19 has become a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Vaccinated members are invited to attend in-person but will be required to wear masks and observe whatever other safety protocols are in place. Since unvaccinated attendees would present a risk to themselves and others we invite them to participate remotely by watching the simulcast of the meeting.
