World Affairs Council - Pilot Production

Tonight, 360 North will shoot a pilot episode of the Juneau World Affairs Council lecture presentation in Juneau.

The Juneau World Affairs Council (JWAC)
is a private, non-profit, non-partisan membership organization. They work to encourage dialog and understanding of important international economic, political, and social issues through informed discussions, personal contacts, and other educational activities.

Juneau World Affairs Council organizes lectures and panel discussions for the benefit of its members and the public. Speakers include ambassadors, professors, business leaders, and other prominent and interesting presenters.

We are recording a lecture by Frank Ruddy on Western Sahara. Ruddy is an attorney who has held positions such as: Senior Attorney, The White House; U.S. Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea; General Counsel, U.S. Dept. of Energy; currently Counsel member of the firm Sale & Quinn in Washington, D.C. In 1994 he was appointed Deputy Chairman of the U.N. Peacekeeping Mission in Western Sahara.

360 North is hoping to partner in the future with JWAC to bring its presentations and speakers to a larger audience throughout Alaska. We start tonight with this project in hopes that it will allow us to bring many enlightening presentations in the future. A broadcast date for this lecture will be determined soon.
