Our conference theme, "Preparing Global Citizens," is a reminder of the many ways our work as international educators has meaning. The Annual Conference Committee (ACC) chaired by Mike Allcott of Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario welcomes proposals that contribute to learning and the exchange of ideas around the conference theme, and around other issues of significance to the field. What new challenges will face international educators in the coming months and years? How can the voices of international educators influence policies that affect international education and exchange? How can international educators build their knowledge of world cultures and societies? The 59th Annual Conference will provide a variety of opportunities to offer answers to those questions and more.
