Individual and Corporate Opportunities

JOIN TODAY

AS A MEMBER OF OUR ORGANIZATION …

… you will have the chance to interact with our international visitors at receptions and brown bag lunches.  If you are interested, you will be given the opportunity to invite IVLP participants to lunch or dinner in your home.  You may volunteer to take visitors sightseeing or to escort them from their hotels to their professional meetings.  We take our visitors canoeing, invite them to picnics, and join them at concerts.  Our Young Professionals Program also gives locals the opportunity to create professional and personal connections through mixers and other casual events.  Through a variety of activities, you can expose yourself & your family to other cultures and can help us dispel negative stereotypes of U.S. citizens.

The U.S. Department of State pays for the delegations’ traveling expenses, but our council is not a government agency and relies on grants and the generosity of local individuals and businesses to help support our mission.

One of the ways we do this is to offer individual & corporate memberships.  We hope you’ll consider joining us.  Not only will you have the opportunity to meet our visitors, but you will also have the chance to meet an interesting array of locals through our:

  • Dinner with a Delegate Program
  • Young Professionals Program
  • Diplomacy Club
  • Community Coffees
  • International Speaker Series
  • Weekend volunteer activities
  • Annual International Woman’s Day Celebration
  • The Mint Jubilee, our annual spring fundraiser

Expand your world!  It’s easier than you think to get involved as a volunteer.  Whatever role you take, as a member you will help strengthen U.S. foreign relations by putting American citizens in direct contact with tomorrow’s international leaders.  Contact us to learn more.
