WACSC HAS ITS OWN STYLE AND PERSONALITY          

The World Affairs Councils of America is a loose affiliation of about 100 Councils differing greatly in size and mission. Some Councils target the business and professional community, some develop programs for high schools, and others, like ourselves, provide world affairs programs for individuals. Certain large Councils do all of these and more.

 

Some Councils have over 10,000 members, while about 20 Councils in smaller communities have 500 or fewer members. The large Councils have professional staffs, while smaller Councils like our Sonoma County Council are run by volunteers. Many of the smaller Councils are affiliated with universities or other institutions that offer office space and staff assistance.

 

The World Affairs Council of Sonoma County (WACSC) is purely volunteer and does not maintain an office. We have a working board of directors; each director has personal responsibility for some aspect our operations. Assignments include areas such as administration, programs, and publicity.

 

Our all-volunteer style has distinct advantages:

          We do not need a staff and have low expenses.

          We fund programs entirely from member dues.

          We devote all our effort to programs and have no fundraising.

          Our working directors stay directly in touch with members and our community.

 

We are constantly looking for new directors and other volunteers. If you would like to help, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Pat Givens, (pgivens@sonic.net) or any of our directors via the local  WACSC phone number, 707-573-6014, or e-mail wacscca@gmail.com.

 

Because WACSC is an IRC Section 501(c) (3) organization, contributions to WACSC, including dues, are tax-deductible, subject to normal IRS rules for substantiating contributions. Regular dues should be paid by check; your cancelled check serves as your receipt. We provide written receipts for Sustaining Member dues and other contributions over $75.00. Of course, amounts paid for luncheon and dinner programs are for meals and are not tax-deductible.

 

The WACSC is managed by volunteers and is dependent on member volunteers for all phases of our activities. With over 420 members, there must be qualified people on our member list who can handle a wide variety of responsibilities. Please step forward and volunteer your skills and time. The satisfaction you will experience, knowing that you are contributing to the operations of this Council, will make it well worthwhile.
