The Families in Global Transition (FIGT) 2017 conference is coming up and their theme is Building on the Basics: Creating Your Tribe on the Move.
The FIGT conference is not really a conference as one might think of professional meetings. It has been called, “A reunion of strangers,” because the attendees are members of the same tribe. We are all highly mobile people living in cultures different from which we were born. Some attendees are newly living abroad and others have lived in more countries than I could ever imagine. The wealth and depth of knowledge and experience are impressive and connecting with this wonderful group of people feels like coming home.
The deadline for submissions for speaking roles is September 7 and more information can be found here. The conference is in The Hague, Netherlands March 23-25, 2017 and I hope to meet you there!
You can read about my Top 10 Takeaways from last year’s conference. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. I have met so many wonderful people at the conference and I believe it is a great investment in yourself as a parent living abroad.
