UCLA International Visitors Bureau at National Meeting

On Feb. 17 in Washington D.C., the State Department celebrated the 50th anniversary of the National Council for International Visitors. UCLA's International Visitors Bureau has been an NCIV member since 1980.

Members of the UCLA International Visitors Bureau met with Assistant Secretary of State Ann Stock at the U.S. Department of State on February 17, 2011. The members were in Washington, DC attending the annual National Council for International Visitors’ (NCIV) National Meeting.

This year marks NCIV’s 50th anniversary and its half-century partnership with the US Department of State. Members and volunteers from 90 community-based organizations around the country spent three days sharing best practices, exchanging ideas and learning more about the International Visitors Leadership Program (IVLP), one of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs’ Premier Exchange Programs.

The UCLA International Visitors Bureau hosts International Visitors who travel to the United States on this program. They arrange professional meetings, cultural activities and home hospitality for visitors from around the world.

A transcript and video of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's remarks to the NCIV meeting on Feb. 17 is available here.
