Dear FIGT Community Members,
Families in Global Transition (FIGT) exists to provide a community platform to share our learning, experiences, overwhelm, and ideas. By its very nature, the FIGT community and FIGT organization are constantly facing a shifting world of transitions.
This year the FIGT Board is taking stock of our rapidly changing world, the shifts in media used for communication, and the avenues in which we operate. We need to do this to ensure clarity around our mission and vision and to align our structures and strategies.
Such restructuring and rethinking requires time, effort, thought, and due diligence.
FIGT conferences are a beloved annual ritual that allow our community to meet, connect, share, and renew our energies. This year, however, due to the volume and complexity of the work required to assess the next steps in FIGT’s future, the Board recognized that it needed to make adjustments to this year’s planned schedule.
Therefore, after careful deliberation and discussion, the Board has decided to postpone the FIGT Conference until 2024.
We know how much our community looks forward to the annual conference. We trust you will understand our need to spend time improving our structures and systems so that we can continue to serve our community in the long term.
We hope that, instead, you can join us at one of the many other events on offer throughout the year, such as the Member Connect meetings, Affiliate events, and our new Let’s Talk Series, etc. Please keep an eye on the monthly FIGT newsletter for dates and times.
If you have questions, please feel free to email the Board President, Hannele Secchia, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FIGT Board
