The American Australian Council is deeply committed to organizing and supporting relevant and impactful programs that broaden and deepen interpersonal and policy networks.
A time-honored special channel of trust and close relationship has been established that spans the globe. The AAC Board, foundational members, supporters, and active participants join together to reinforce and expand this channel through programs and activities.
Our close alignment with the Australian Embassy in Washington, consuls general throughout the U.S., key government officials in both the United States and Australia, allow us to curate our activities so that program formats encourage substantive and meaningful exchanges that focus on what is most relevant and impactful to participants.
The AAC hosts private and off-the-record exchanges between leaders and stakeholders of Australia and the United States in a manner designed to reinforce close relations, enhance alignment, mutually share information, and provide constructive inputs to policy makers.
