President’s Letter

September 2017

Lee Wilwerding

Thanks to the efforts of Hank Nobel and his planning team the Summer Forum at Tidepoint played to SRO crowds.  Ranging from Sports to Spooks to Legal Immigration, there being plenty of coverage of the other kind, provided diverse but high interest topics and served as a good lead in to our upcoming Speaker Series.

But before we get to the start of the Speaker Series, we have the WACHH Annual Meeting at 10 AM on 8 September in Fellowship Hall at First Presbyterian Church.

  • Jeff Stokes, Program Chair, will preview our season line-up of Speakers and Topics.
  • Dave Mortimer will preview our Fall Forum Program featuring Henry Kissinger’s book World Order published in 2015.
  • John and Lesly Gilbert and Committee are in the early planning of our Evening Speaker Series but will provide a sneak peek.
  • With Beaufort County Schools just beginning the new school year, Carleton Dallas with Academic World Quest (AWQ) and Jeanie Silletti with Model UN, now expanding to three schools, will provide an overview of their Outreach Programs.

We anticipate the business part of the meeting will take about an hour and after a short break Margaret McManus and Maureen Korzik will provide an orientation for new members of the World Affairs Council.  So, come early to socialize, have some “He Brews” Coffee and pick up your name tags for the new season.

Membership renewals are tracking slightly ahead of last year at this time which to us on the Board means that you like what we are providing and we know you will be excited with the new Season.

See you in the pews.
