World Affairs Council of Northwest Ohio Timeline: Inception―Spring  2013

In the fall of 2010, two town hall meetings were held for people involved or interested in international education topics. The intent was to gauge the interest of promoting such activities in Northwest Ohio. By July of that year, the process had begun to formally apply for membership in the World Affairs Council of America.
