International Forum

"Reaching Out"

The conference committee would like to announce a very special event at this year’s 30th Birthday Celebrations, which we hope will reflect our commitment as a Division to outwardly reflect and widen our horizons. This important forum demonstrates the Division’s commitment to an increasingly international perspective.
