Who Are We?

The Albuquerque Council for International Visitors is now Global Ties ABQ! Each year we bring more than 150 emerging leaders from around the world to Albuquerque to meet with their counterparts in: business, education, government, NGO leadership, conservation, healthcare, governance, multicultural societies and much more. We connect international visitors, our community and our members to one another through citizen diplomacy and international exchange. As citizen diplomats, we positively build US and International Relations “one hand shake at a time.”

Global Ties ABQ is a membership based organization. Members volunteer their time to host dinners and escort visitors around Albuquerque. Inviting a group of visitors into the average American home has shown to make great strides in eliminating barriers of cultural generalizations and positively impacts International Relations as well as building cross-cultural friendships.
