A long summer’s adventure traveling in Europe after college led Bill Gertz to a career in education abroad. He has brought his passions for travel and writing together over the years to promote the value of education abroad beginning with his work at CIEE in 1976 and continuing to the present at AIFS where he is President and CEO. He points out that over the years, most of the issues in our field remain the same, but the people and approaches change. He challenges the listener to remain true to our ultimate goal of achieving world peace through international travel and education abroad, and reminds us all that we must continue the journey together to expand opportunities for all students. Bill is interviewed by his friend and former colleague, Mickey Slind, at The Forum’s 12th Annual Conference in Atlanta.
