State Information 

Massachusetts is one of the six New England states that comprise NAFSA's Region XI. Unlike other states in our region, Massachusetts has such a high density of institutions that it's divided into two zones: Eastern Massachusetts and Central/Western Massachusetts, each with a NAFSA State Representative. Updates, news, and other events for Eastern Massachusetts are communicated through the main Region XI Listserv. If you're not currently on our mailing list, learn more and register your email here.

State Meetings

Typically, Eastern Massachusetts organizes at least one meet-up a year for networking and fun at different locations. On occasion, other special sessions are organized as well. The Region's calendar is updated regularly with upcoming events.

If you'd like to propose a special event, are interested in sponsoring/hosting a future State Meeting, or would like an event shared with the region on our calendar, please contact your State Rep.

  • "My favorite part of serving as the Eastern Massachusetts State Rep is connecting with other colleagues and professionals in the area. NAFSA has been an incredible resource and network for me and I love helping others take advantage of everything we do and plan as a region. Whether you’re a long-time NAFSA member or brand new, reach out and introduce yourself." - Peter McGovern, Eastern MA State Rep.
