Atlanta IRC - Thanks for everything!

We're back from the first IRC of the season -- and what a start it was! Highlights for me include: 1) The Grand Hyatt Buckhead. It's balanced the hotel/conference/meeting feel by landscaping a breathtaking, three-story waterfall and Japanese garden right into the building. 2) The successful maiden voyage of our event-app! Whova was an amazing vessel for recruiter, canididate, and organizer, communication. Everyone dove right in to post announcements, share photos, send over 5,700 messages, and 7,000+ profile views. We also made a lot of trees very happy by going green. 3) Working with the Teach Away and AASSA teams! We're so glad we partnered with these organizations again to bring even more candidates and schools together. 4) As always, my favorite part of an IRC is walking alongside our candidates. Really, we get to work with the most genuine, funny, adventurous, and kind educators out there! Being part of their international story is a total joy and honor.

Curious about what these IRCs are all about? Being there is the best way to understand the energy and joy of an IRC, so consider joining us at our January Bangkok IRC or February NYC IRC. But, until then, peek into the life of an IRC through these compiled below! You can also check out photos at #ISSatlanta2017 or on our organization's Facebook page. Enjoy!
