Dear International Studies SIG Members:

I am looking forward to seeing you at the annual meeting in Chicago and encourage you to bring a friend. In  addition to our amazing SIG sessions, I would please plan to attend the events noted below. 

SIG Reception. Friday, April 14th at 7:30 to 9 p.m. Radisson Blu Hotel, Chicago, Floor: 2nd Floor, Caspian.  There will be plenty of opportunities for networking.  

SIG Business Meeting. Saturday, April 15th at 8 a.m. Hyatt Regency Chicago, Floor: West Tower - Ballroom  Level, Acapulco. You will have the opportunity to interact with our honored panelists Dr Philip Smith, Dr.  Rosemary Campbell-Stephen, and Dr Charlyn Henderson as our guests for a panel titled, "Ubuntu:  Legitimizing self and identity as a critical part of leadership".  

Virtual Mentoring Forum. Thursday, May 4, 2023, at 12-1:30 pm. Link to access this event will be provided  later.  

The reception, business meeting, and virtual mentoring forum are a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow  International Studies SIG members and make new connections for future research and practice collaborations.  We are proud of our diverse and accomplished membership and invite you to get to know them and help them to  get to know you as well. AERA attendees who are not members of the International Studies SIG yet are also  welcome. Be sure to bring extra business cards!  

With best wishes,
