Members spend a lot of time with our international visitors, accompanying them to professional meetings and cultural activities, and hosting them for lunches and dinners. These acts of citizen diplomacy help build economic and cultural bridges, and promote peace in the world. Members and our community partners often develop business relationships with our visitors, growing New Mexico’s economy and promoting Albuquerque as a thriving international city.
Membership and a brief training are required to host international visitors.
Global Ties ABQ is proud to announce that we are now offering a free Student Membership that will allow university and college students the opportunity to accompany our international visitors with our more seasoned members. In addition to giving students a chance to meet people from around the world, they will engage in conversations with community resources and get to know some of Albuquerque’s most interesting, well-traveled residents.
As a membership organization, we ask that all members participate in our Annual General Meeting to vote on board members and have a voice in our strategic direction.
