Our president, Timothy Wells, is in Houston, Texas as we speak. He is attending the NAFSA annual conference. NAFSA, as we said before, is the National Association of Foreign Student Advisers. They are an organization that strives to better students’ real world education as they prepare to enter the working world. Not only do they work to aid students in learning new career skills, but they also work to strengthen ties between several nations. This helps students to better their global skills when they travel abroad for their internships.
One of the biggest aspects of this organization is their annual conference. This annual conference is taking place in Houston, Texas for 2012. Last year it was right in your home away from home, Vancouver. We were able to host an event to help teach attendees about what we do as an organization, and how our knowledge can help them. The annual conference this year will bring more than 8,000 people from 120 different countries to Houston. The goal of these guests is to further their knowledge about international education.
