Affinity Group Meetings
Affinity group (noun): a group of people linked by a common interest
New this year, Affinity Group Meetings take place on Tuesday at 2:30 PM. These 45-minute sessions encourage likeminded colleagues and faculty members from schools worldwide to meet, network, and discuss issues relating directly to their academic discipline or area of responsibility. Each session has a suggested focus to initiate conversation and includes a TSS representative to facilitate discussion. So, introduce yourself to the group, share your ideas of what has worked well for you (and what hasn’t worked so well), and create your own global network of IBSC colleagues. Stay in touch and share ideas post-conference, and have a ready source of colleagues and new friends to catch up with at the next IBSC Annual Conference!
