Attend a Conference

One of the most important things you can do is continue to learn from the experience you had abroad. One of the easiest ways to do this is attend a regional returnee conference. If a conference isn’t currently offered in your state, we encourage you to email us at and check out these great online resources to start “unpacking” your overseas experience.
