The benefits of becoming a member of a state-based international education organization like WAIE include but are not limited to:

  • Accessibility
  • Affordability
  • Networking opportunities
  • Professional development – opportunities to attend workshops and trainings, to present at conferences, and to serve on a leadership team; colleagues in the field, graduate students and K-12 staff members who often have limited budgets to travel and attend conferences and workshops through NAFSA attend our conference and full-day workshops.
  • Representation to NAFSA Region V – The Chair of WAIE serves as NAFSA's Wisconsin representative on the Region V Team.
  • Grants for members to attend NAFSA regional conferences, WAIE conferences, NAFSA Advocacy Days, and other trainings as they come up.
