October 28-30, 2010 - Nashville, Tennessee

2010 marked the 26th CSIET Annual Conference which was held in Nashville, Tennessee on October 28-30, 2010. Nearly 160 particpants attended the three-day meeting which consisted of workshops with informative topics focusing on community best practices, legislative initiatives and school outreach opportunities. Session topics included “Darkness to Light Pre-Conference Workshop”, “Advocacy & Federal Budget Update”, “United States Department of State J Visa Session”, “Untangling the Social Web", "International Member Accreditation", "Local Representative Screening Workshop”, "Conducting & Evaluating Criminal Background Checks", and “Host Family Screening & Orientation Workshop.” Several of the presentation materials can be accessed through our “Members Only” website or by clicking here.

"The conference sessions provided me with practical and applicable information to take back to my organization. The speakers were very engaging and the Department of State J Visa session came at an important time for our community. The Darkness to Light pre conference training session was a great addition to this years agenda." - CSIET Exchange Program Member
