About Our Organization:
The Peoria Area
World Affairs Council
(PAWAC) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization open to all individuals. Since
the first annual conference in 1969, PAWAC has promoted a better understanding of world affairs among the people of Central Illinois by sponsoring public programs and fostering a cooperative educational approach to world problems.
PAWAC is affiliated with the World Affairs Councils of America and the Foreign Policy Association. PAWAC meets the first Thursday of each month for a business meeting followed by dinner and an open discussion.
Each fall, PAWAC hosts the International Affairs Scholastic Bowl in
Peoria, sponsored by CEFCU, and in collaboration with the
Peoria Journal Star. This annual event invites twenty-four high school teams from throughout the region and has become
one of our most effective efforts for educational outreach.
institutions include Bradley University, Eureka College, Illinois
Central College, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
We give special thanks to our corporate sponsors as well as Friends and Supporters of PAWAC.
