Good afternoon everyone!
How was your weekend?
There were a few events taking place this past weekend.
One of these events was NAFSA. NAFSA is the National Association of Foreign Student Advisers. The event this year is taking place in Houston, Texas. NAFSA was founded with the intent to furthering professional skill sets of students and aiding with the development of internships. INTERNeX’s president Timothy Wells is in attendance at the annual conference this year. He left this weekend and he will be staying through the duration of the week. Hopefully with this trip he will be able to teach people about how our program works. Additionally, we hope that he will be able to bring back new, innovative information that we can use to further our program.
Last Year’s Conference:
Last year we were able to host a large reception for NAFSA because the event took place here in Vancouver! This event was called the International Networking Event. The Blarney Stone helped us by providing a location for the event. This event gave our candidates a great chance to network and meet new people.
Bike Tour around Stanley Park
We also had a few people go with Xenia on a bike tour around Stanley Park. The people who were in attendance got to experience the beautiful views around the bike path. It was a wonderful, sunny Sunday afternoon for the bike ride. We have to take advantage of the days where it doesn’t rain in Vancouver!
We hope you had a wonderful weekend! Did any of you do anything exciting?
