About International Affairs Council:
International Affairs Council (IAC) is a nonprofit organization that promotes understanding of world affairs, citizen-to-citizen diplomacy and the recognition of North Carolina as a center of education, culture and business. IAC, which began in 1973 as the Research Triangle International Visitors Center (IVC), plans itineraries for visiting international dignitaries and professionals interested in business development, education and other topics, as well as hosts events that bring high-profile speakers from around the world to the Triangle. After beginning as a service of the office of the University of North Carolina’s then-president Terry Sanford, IVC was incorporated under N.C. law on July 30, 1975 as a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. During the early 1980s, the organization was revitalized and moved to a larger office space with additional staff thanks to the support of Dr. William Friday, who was president of the UNC system at that time. In 1986, the name of the organization was changed to International Visitors Council. Since then, the organization has quadrupled the number of visitors it hosts each year to over 600 and now has six staff members. In 2002, IVC merged with Triangle World Affairs Council to become International Visitors Council/World Affairs Council. In 2005, the board of directors appointed a special committee that decided on the current permanent name: International Affairs Council. IAC’s mission is to improve international relations, raise awareness of national and global issues and attract foreign dignitaries and professionals to the state. It receives grant funding from the U.S. Department of the State, corporate and philanthropic foundations, individual members and numerous other sources. For more information, visit www.iacnc.org.
