Families in Global Transition - International Conference


Our MISSION is to support the family and their organizations to accomplish the assignment. We provide strategic resources for families and individuals who live, move, and work throughout the world.

Our VISION is to be a leading member of a global network which promotes the positive value of the international experience, and empowers the family unit and those who serve it before, during and after international transitions.

We VALUE the international experience. We believe in the capacity of the expatriate and repatriate family to transition successfully, and to leverage the international experience for all of its human and global potential.
