I am pleased to welcome new and returning International Studies members to San Antonio!

We had 139 submissions and 74 accepted proposals.  Please come to our Business Meeting Saturday, April 29th from 6:30 - 8:00pm at the San Antonio Mariott Rivercenter, third floor - Conference Room #12. Reception on the water to follow. 

Congratulations to Professors' Bong Gee Jang - Syracuse University, Hyonsuk Cho - University of North Dakota, & Peter Wiens - University of Nevada-Las Vegas who will present their paper (Best Paper Award) entitled "The Relationship Between Teaching Efficiency and Teaching Quality of EFL Teachers in Niger." 

I would also like to announce and thank our new Webmaster, Frank Fonseca from the American Institutes for Research, who rebuilt our Web page at the 11th hour. I am also welcoming our new International Studies Photographer, Ms. Maria Sun, with over thirty years of international corporate experience. 

Final accolades go to our Awards Committee, Professors' Johanna Lasonen - University of South Florida, James R. Campbell - St. John's University, and Manuel Martinez-Pons - City University of New York at Brooklyn College.
