The events of recent months have highlighted the importance of connection. This is especially true for the globally mobile community. FIGT connects: people to people; research to practice; people to resources; businesses to people; authors to an audience and communities to one another. This hasn’t stopped just because travel has!

Our members are the heart of our organisation. Through the support of our diverse and dynamic members and the dedication of nearly 100 volunteers, FIGT has grown from a grassroots organization into a global community touching nearly every corner of the globe. Membership and sponsorship is the cornerstone of our existence and is fundamental to our ability to fulfill our mission to be a welcoming forum for globally mobile individuals, families, and those working with them. Together, we promote cross-sector connections for sharing research and developing best practices that support the growth, success and well-being of people crossing cultures around the world.

This October we are asking for your help! We need more members to help us continue our vital role.
