 We are recharged!

ICNT CAMBRIDGE WAS AMAZING

               

Dear Amicus member. 

In this issue we bring you a summary of the ICNT in Cambridge, information about Working Holidays in 2016, Learning opportunities and volunteer opportunities. 

At ICNT 16 we said goodbye and THANK YOU to departing members of the Executive Committee and welcomed new ones.  We said a heart-felt THANK YOU to our Chair for the first 10 years of INTO's existence, Simon Molesworth and we welcomed our new Chair, Dame Fiona Reynolds.   We celebrated the appointment of Catherine Leonard as Secretary-General of INTO.  

We are very excited to have launched the INTO Tool Kit on the Website.  The Tool Kit was compiled, under the direction of Catherine,  by Hui-Ting (Dora) Hsu, who served as an intern in the summer of this year.   Dora, by the way, is one of our new Executive Committee members as well as being a very active member of the INTO Web Team.    The Tool Kit was 'compiled' by Dora, but in a very real sense it was produced by  our members.   Catherine took the compiled Tool Kit and placed the over 80 individual items on the website.  (See the link below).

The INTO Secretariat is here to help and support you.   We welcome your suggestions and comments.  

 Sincerely the Secretariat Team
