Academy City Chapters
The Academy of Culture Ambassadors has City Chapters in Omaha, Denver and
hold amazing local meetings using a format similar to that of traditional association chapters, i.e., organized
meetings with featured speakers.
This model will continue for those interested. But Culture Clubs may form separate from a local city chapter or
they might evolve into becoming a chapter.
The model is similar to that of the time-honored book clubs. It combines learning, social time,
and networking all rolled into one. Groups meet at coffee shops, lunch cafes, wine and cheese bars, someone’s
home, or someone’s office. Simple, easy, fun, and no cost. No arranging of speakers, AV equipment, finding a
place to meet, and food.
Those attending a discussion time will have reviewed a timely culture article, book, or video that is the
discussion topic for a meeting.
The get-togethers are organic. The mix of people attending a certain group might change from time to time.
More groups spin off from existing groups. Each group has a volunteer facilitator that chooses place, time
and topic to be discussed.
The format for meetings is not fixed. But a typical format is for 4-8 people which accommodates cafe table
sizes. Each meeting lasts about one hour.
If you would like to start a club, send
Jerry Wagner an email including your city’s name. As we get contacts in a city, we do e-intro’s and
