AAIE 2018 Conference Wrap-Up


We want to thank everyone for making the 2018 Alabama Association of International Educators Conference a great success last week.  
 
117 International Education professionals attended the one-day conference on Thursday, April 12, 2018 on the UA Campus.
 
During the day, there were 23 session presentations, which covered the spectrum of International Education - Enrolment Management, Education Abroad, Leadership, and International Student and Scholar Services. You can access the session materials and handouts here: AAIE 2018 Conference Materials and Handouts.
 
CONFERENCE EVALUATION FORM 
For those who attended, we ask that you please complete a brief evaluation online. Your comments and input will enable us to better plan and execute future conferences. Please take just a few minutes to complete the AAIE 2018 Satisfaction Survey.
 
UPDATED AAIE CONSTITUTION
During the business luncheon, the AAIE Membership voted to update the AAIE Constitution to include three changes:
  1. Formally separate the Secretary/Treasurer position into separate positions (originally approved by the AAIE Membership during the 2014 AAIE Conference in Troy, AL);
  2. Include provisions for removal of AAIE Leadership in instances of departure from the state, field of International Education, and when action is deemed to have been harmful to the Association; and
  3. The formal creation of the Communications Coordinator position.
You can now access the updated Constitution in the Documents Section of the Site and here: AAIE Constitution.

NEW AAIE LEADERSHIP
During the conference, the following leadership positions were elected by the membership:
  • Chair-Elect - Justin Lampley, University of Alabama - Birmingham (UAB)
  • Treasurer - Hannah Rowe, The University of North Alabama
  • Communications Coordinator - Caroline McLean, Birmingham-Southern College

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
We sincerely thank each of our amazing sponsors for supporting the association and our membership. Without our sponsors’ generous support, there is no way we would be able to put on such an impressive professional conference.
