EA KC Connector Program

Annual Conference & ExpoNAFSA 2018 Call for Proposals

The Education Abroad (EA) Connector Program matches first-time attendees with education abroad professionals who have experience navigating the NAFSA Annual Conference. "Mentors" will help "first-timers" maneuver the conference schedule of events; target important sessions for education abroad professionals; and meet and get acquainted with colleagues in the field.

Connections are carefully selected based on matching criteria and pairs will be introduced and notified by email so they can connect prior to the conference. We are no longer accepting applications from first-timers. Registration closes for Seasoned Professionals on Friday, April 28, 2017.

 Registration is now closed. 

Connector pairs will be notified and introduced by email no later than May 12, 2017, so they can connect by e-mail or phone prior to meeting in-person at the conference. Connector pairs will decide on how and when to meet based on their own arrival times and schedules. Below are a few events we hope you will attend:

  • EA Network Reception Monday, May 29 | 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
  • Education Abroad Newcomers Reception Tuesday, May 30 | 10:15 a.m.- 11:15 a.m.
  • Education Abroad Knowledge Community Update, May 30 | 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
