The World Affairs Council of the Desert needs a robust membership to bring our community, at affordable cost, nationally recognized guest speakers on a broad range of World Affairs subjects. The cordial social setting for our dinners at the Thunderbird Country Club, Rancho Mirage CA. This venue provides a unique opportunity for our members to meet and conduct intellectual discourse with those of similar interests. You will have an opportunity to personally meet our distinguished speakers and to participate in the question and answer period. Membership of any organization is important to its robust continuity. New members can bring new ideas and see things with a new set of eyes, thus enhancing overall effectiveness as an organization and the community. This year we are encouraging each of our members to invite one guest to attend one of our dinners so they will see how their membership will bring added value to our organization. If all our current members bring in just one new member, we will double our ranks for this coming season. I want to make this year "The year of membership." With your support we can make this happen.
