The International Relations Council works in partnership with businesses, universities, community organizations and K-12 schools to bring a global perspective to our community.

We bring world leaders and dignitaries to the metro region, host forums for high school students to interact with and learn from foreign policy experts, and create opportunities for area business leaders to strengthen relationships abroad.
