About The Program
Every year the U.S. State Department brings over 5,000 “high-potential” middle managers from around the world for their first visit to the United States. The World Affairs Council of Las Vegas, as a member of Global Ties US, serves as the official local host for visitors assigned to Las Vegas by the U.S. State Department.

The World Affairs Council of Las Vegas is one of more than 100 non-profit organizations around the nation affiliated with Global Ties US. Our office arranges professional meetings between visitors and local professionals, travel, accommodation, cultural encounters and visits to schools as well as home hospitality.
