World Affairs Council of Hilton Head

Meetings & Events

WACHH is a non-profit organization that strives to keep members abreast of developments in national interests and international affairs through extensive educational programming and participation in Council-sponsored events.  We use a variety of avenues to accomplish this. Each has a slightly different approach but all focus on World Affairs.

Our principal program is the Friday Speaker Series, which 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 ProgramPlease check the program calendar for exact dates and topics. Attendance at the Friday Speaker Series is a primary benefit of joining WACHH. Guests are invited to attend as well (see Guest Policy).

Our Evening Speaker Series runs from January through April and is held at the SoundWaves. Speakers are residents of the Lowcountry and are known for their international expertise in government, business, military affairs and academia.

Great Decisions and Fall Forum use a discussion group platform and give our members the opportunity to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. 

Summer Forum covers timely national topics with an accent on local talent.  This program is held once a month in June, July and August at TidePointe Retirement Community and is open to the public.

We invite you to explore all the programs we offer. Each program is unique in its approach to informing our members, but all are engaging and entertaining.
