    FIGT Netherlands Affiliate Meeting

    Diverse Voices: Why they matter and why you need them in your communication

    Date: Monday, May 28, 2018

    Time: 7:00 pm

    Location: Expatriate Archive Centre,  Paramaribostraat 20, 2585 GN Den Haag, Netherlands

    Cost: FREE. Open to all.

    Monday Morning Emails was the book everyone was talking about at our March conference (have you read it yet?!) and we are so pleased to inform you that it's co-author Jo Parfitt, who is not only a long-time FIGT supporter, but also co-founder of the Parfitt-Pascoe Writing Residency scholarship program, a praised journalist, and founder of Summertime Publishing will be our featured speaker.

    Jo will discuss how to source and use the voices of experts, peers and people in your writing – blogs, marketing materials and websites. The talk will follow with a collaborative forum in which we will share our ideas for sources. 

    Following Jo's presentation will be conversation, updates about FIGT NL, and networking.

    If you have not yet RSVP'd please do so, space is limited.

    Hope to see you there!

    International Family Law

    National rights don't necessarily move with you 

    When the music stops for a transnational family:
    which court and which laws apply?

    : Monday, June 4, 2018

    Time: 11:30 am to 1:00 pm

    Location: The World Bank, 701 18th St NW, Room J1-050, Washington, DC 20006

    Everyone hopes all goes well in family life. But living and working abroad or being in families with spouses from other countries or cultures has its own pressures and stresses, sometimes leading to family or parental breakdown.

    This talk will cover points which might provoke alarm bells as well as preparation before you travel. During this session, you will receive a global view of family laws around the world and some practical tips to possibly help keep the music playing!
