International Meetings

European Meetings

European Meetings give members in Europe a chance to connect. They also are a valuable opportunity for North American members to attend and learn from professionals in another part of the world—often the new best practice or upcoming trend originates outside the U.S.!

Peter Johnson, European Group Secretary, created this lovely video montage of past European Meetings. Despite the chaos on this current pandemic and the cancellations and postponements of meetings, we all look forward optimistically to the future and recall some of the lovely moments shared in the past.

Pacific Meetings

Pacific Meetings give members in the Pacific region a chance to connect. They also are a valuable opportunity for North American members to attend and learn from professionals in another part of the world—often the new best practice or upcoming trend originates outside the U.S.!

Pacific Group meetings in Australia and New Zealand are suspended for the time being due to COVID-19 and restriction of travel between individual States and the two countries.
