2018 Annual Conference

Each October, Alliance members come to Washington, DC, for a membership gathering that includes meetings of issue-based task forces, a networking reception, and influential guest speakers from in and around the exchanges field. The Alliance for International Exchange is eagerly planning a special 25th Anniversary Annual Conference! Our meeting is expanding to a conference that includes non-members, a RO/ARO track, and a gala dinner. Registration is now closed.

Eureka Facts Intern and Trainee Report

We are thrilled to announce the release of the EurekaFacts Intern and Trainee Report.

The report found that the Intern and Trainee programs positively impact the United States by strengthening our national security and supporting our economy. Not only did 75% of participants in 2017 develop a more positive view of the American people, they also contributed over a half billion dollars to the U.S. economy during their stay.

Alliance 25th Anniversary Gala

On the occasion of the Alliance’s 25th Anniversary, we hope you will join us and your exchange colleagues in celebration of our community’s milestones, accomplishments, friendships, and stories on October 23, 2018. Registration is now closed.
