A Recap of the 2020 TAICEP Virtual Conference

First off, a big thank you to all of the attendees, presenters, sponsors and committees who helped bring the 2020 TAICEP Virtual Conference to life. Though we were unable to gather in person in Glasgow Scotland as we had hoped, the 2020 TAICEP Virtual Conference built upon the success of our five previous conferences in Toronto, Chicago, Rome, Philadelphia and Vancouver. In a virtual environment, we continued to share our similarities, understand our differences, and work for the common good. 

Our daily live sessions through the month of October 2020 brought together seasoned professionals and newcomers alike from around the globe.  Since sessions and events did not overlap, attendees could participate in far more sessions possible than during an in-person 3-day conference, and for a significantly reduced fee. Our 40+ sessions, and other networking opportunities spread over 20 days were all recorded and can still be accessed via last year's website to those who attended.

If you're new to TAICEP, welcome! This is a membership organization for anyone involved in the specialized field of international credential evaluation. Our members represent higher education institutions, independent evaluation agencies, ENIC/NARIC offices, government ministries, licensing authorities, examination boards, awarding bodies, and other organizations. At each TAICEP annual conference, credential evaluators from around the world, both those new to the field as well as those with years of experience, come together to learn, to share knowledge, to network, and to promote the interests of our unique industry.

2021 TAICEP Virtual Conference

Although we were hopeful to resume an in-person conference for 2021, the conference will be held in a virtual space this year and we will continue with our daily live sessions throughout the month of October and November.
