What Happens at the Regional Level?
Many opportunities for involvement, association activities, and leadership are found at the regional level. Each region is governed by an elected chair and a team composed of representatives of the knowledge communities and interest groups. Many states and metropolitan areas hold regular NAFSA meetings. The regions sponsor frequent workshops on topics of special interest and annual conferences.
Regional Conferences 2016
Annually in the fall, the 11 NAFSA regions hold their conferences. These are excellent opportunities to network with accomplished colleagues and to stay current with the latest trends. View dates and locations for this year's conferences.
* Members who reside outside the United States are encouraged to participate in professional development activities that take place at the regional and national levels and to become involved in NAFSA's volunteer leadership. NAFSA also works collaboratively with sister organizations in other countries and world regions that promote international education and exchange.
