The Forum is sincerely grateful to our members for your efforts to ensure quality education abroad experiences for all students. It has been heartbreaking to see the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on our field, yet we feel so much pride in the care and consideration demonstrated for students, including both their physical safety and academic continuity. While student mobility may be paused for the time being, our advocacy for the field and hard work must continue, and The Forum is committed to supporting you through the challenges ahead. We understand that our member institutions and organizations are managing priorities, restricting budgets, and facing difficult decisions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is our hope that you will prioritize your Forum membership and the value that it provides your institution.
In support of our members, there will be no increase in membership dues for the 2020-2021 membership year. In addition, fees for all events and trainings will remain the same or be reduced as appropriate for virtual formats and experiences.
