Our local group family is growing with the recent welcoming of SIETAR Atlanta in Spring 2021 and the revitalized SIETAR Chicagoland and SIETAR Bay Area this Fall. In an effort to create community with all our local group members, we will be hosting a series of fun events throughout the year, starting with an Intercultural Holiday Happy Hour that took place on November 11.

SIETAR Atlanta hosted its first event of the season in October entitled “Sharing Stories and Anecdotes – Critical Cultural Moments in our Intercultural World” with participants dialing in from across the U.S. and from far-reaching places such as Ghana, Russia, Portugal, Spain, and Germany. For more information or to join contact sietaratl@gmail.com.

In efforts to revitalize the SIETAR San Francisco Bay Area, a meeting was held in early October with a few interested members to discuss potential ways to get this group active again.
