In the age of COVID-19-related restricted international travel and exchanges, U.S. non-profit organizations dedicated to promoting and strengthening U.S. relations with the rest of the world have an ever more important role to play and must overcome current challenges. Leaders of the Japan Society, Asia Society, and the World Affairs Councils of America will discuss their experiences and lessons-learned thus far in responding to the impact of COVID-19 in their respective communities. Tune-in to the webinar to learn what they are hearing from other countries about the current situation and their perspectives on COVID-19 implications for the future of U.S.-Japan relations, U.S. presence in Asia, and U.S. global leadership.

Access Council Virtual Programming via WACA's Members-Only Portal
WACA is busy preparing a number of additional resources for the Members-Only section! WACA strives to provide Councils with easy access to tools, guidelines, events, and more that add value to our Members both personally and professionally, to our Councils' overall operations, and to the Network as a whole. This is a top priority for the National Office, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. That is why we've added two resource sections dedicated to COVID-19 related information (including the Paycheck Protection Program ) and digital programming available to the public by Councils.

The goal is to make the Members-Only section a one-stop shop for all Council needs. However, these sections are only as good as the information contained within, so we are calling on all Councils to please submit any documentation per the categories below, or any other information helpful to the Network.

The Members-Only section is a private benefit for our Council Members. Please contact Rachel Pastor at rpastor@worldaffairscouncils.org for login details and account creation.
