With great sadness, we remember Michael Meissner, Chairman of the CCWA Board, who passed away unexpectedly on May 16, 2016. At this time our thoughts are with Mike’s family. We will miss Mike and remember him with great fondness. Michael’s relationship with the Cleveland Council on World Affairs started when he was a high school student at St. Ignatius and participated in CCWA’s Model UN program. That experience sparked his lifelong interest in world affairs. He joined the Council 35 years ago, and was elected the Chairman of the CCWA Board last year. Michael was passionate about world affairs and a dedicated and committed Board member. Michael and his wife Kathiann Kowalski were active members of the Cleveland Committee on Foreign Affairs.
