32nd Annual Conference

“CSIET: Finding Your Flow. Achieving Operational Excellence”

Date: October 26-28, 2016

Location: Huntington Beach, CA – Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort

With a strong showing from the International High School Exchange Community of 150 participants (103 organizations), we gathered, took detailed notes, talked about practices and policies, and discovered ways to improve the operations of international student exchange programs. We networked and cultivated innovative ideas to support young ambassadors.

We are proud to be a part of this industry and work hard for the safety and well-being of international exchange students, and we are thankful that our efforts do not go unnoticed. Read Hillary Clinton’s Letter in support of CSIET.

Conference Presentations are now available online in our Member Center and in the AnyEvent Application. To Access the presentations, login to your CSIET Account. Click Member Center, then Member Resources, then Conference Archive.
