We are thrilled to announce that the World Affairs Council of Connecticut‘s very own, Megan Torrey, CEO, will be nationally recognized with the 2020 World Affairs Councils of America Chairman’s Individual Award.

This award is presented by the World Affairs Councils of America in recognition of “Megan’s outstanding leadership and dedication, not only for the benefit of Connecticut and the region but also in the example she sets for the 90-member nationwide network of World Affairs Councils.” Megan will join only three other past award recipients.

In one of the most difficult years faced by our Council and community, Megan has lead CTWAC to new heights:
• CxC: Amplified, a national ideas summit, convening 90+ Councils across the nation for a week of dialogue and thought leadership
• State of the World, a brand-new virtual series with top leaders addressing everything from diversifying the ranks of U.S. leadership and the future of work to the global competition for a vaccine
• Global Security Forum 2020: Battlefronts, four days with 20+ powerhouse leaders in national and global security from Dr. Richard Haass to GEN Daniel Hokanson, Chief of the National Guard Bureau
• Model UN Institute, the first-ever CTWAC summer institute, enhancing distance learning and leadership opportunities for students

We are excited to celebrate Megan’s leadership together with you and to recognize that this honor is also a reflection of the strength of our CTWAC community and our collective dedication to global education.

Please join us in congratulating Megan on this well-deserved honor!
