Our super conference team and the Board of Directors are excited about the great line-up of master workshops, keynotes, and conference sessions. Portland is such a great intercultural venue, and we’re very pleased to be welcomed and supported by the intercultural community here, including The Intercultural Communication Institute (ICI). I hope you’ll take full advantage of your time here at the conference. In addition to the wonderful opportunity for professional development, growth, and learning in our programmed offerings, we intend to create a warm, inclusive environment for networking, meeting new and old friends, and enjoying being around other interculturalists. We’re glad you’re here, and I hope your attendance will be an engaged, fruitful, and fun experience. Christopher Deal, Ph.D. SIETAR-USA President Welcome from the Conference Co-Chairs W elcome to the beautiful Northwest and the lovely city of roses. Many Portlanders enjoy their reputation for being “just a little bit weird.” We’ve spent several hours in the past few months photographing many of the “icons” of this city, which will be shared with you as lunch table centerpieces. We hope you find several that resonate with your own diverse interests and create a sense of curiosity about the city and the region that we are so proud of. These photographs are yours to keep as mementos of the 14th Annual SIETAR-USA conference. Because none of us stand on our own, we selected the theme of “Pioneering Interculturalists” to honor those who came before us. Consistent with that title, we are hosting the first-ever invitation-only summit for pioneers who will have the opportunity to visit with old colleagues and identify how the field has changed over the years and what they think the future will hold. While only “seniors” in the field will attend this Saturday session, the results of the day will be shared in some way with the rest of us after the conference. And because learning and awareness are never enough, the second half of our title is “From Awareness to Action.” We’ve selected keynote speakers, poster sessions and concurrent workshop sessions that will offer you many ideas for how you can translate your growing awareness into actions that will make a difference in the world in which we work and share. Thursday evening will feature some Portland traditions for our dine around: food carts, a brewery, and a lovely vegetarian option. After dinner, be sure to join other participants in the open mic experience of storytelling about training experiences that should keep you reminiscing for days to come. Friday evening, as always, will be a grand gala with the presentation of the Margaret D. Pusch Founder’s award, followed by dancing to a magnificent band. Additionally, this year, we are providing the no host bar in a separate room with space for you to visit with each other if dancing is not your preferred activity. One of the best things about a SIETAR-USA conference is meeting old friends and connecting with new ones. We hope you will enjoy doing both and look forward to joining you as we network together. Warm regards, Donna M. Stringer, Ph.D. and Lillian Tsai SIETAR-USA 2014 Conference Co-Chairs O C TO B E R 2 2 – 2 5 , 2 0 1 4 | S I E TA R U S A . O R G 3 Conference Highlights NEWCOMER’S SESSION: SIETAR-USA seeks to model inclusiveness. Accordingly, we begin our conference with an orientation for newcomers, and everyone is welcome. Wednesday evening, October 22 from 5:15-6:00 pm in the Lloyd Center Ballroom. Learn about SIETAR-USA and how to make the most of the conference learning and networking opportunities. CONFERENCE KICK-OFF AND WELCOME RECEPTION: The Official Opening is Wednesday evening, October 22 from 6:007:30 pm. This event will include a welcome from Siletz Tribal Member “Bud” Lane, performances by local Hawaiian and African dance troupes, an overview of the conference events, and two exciting networking opportunities, including the always-popular Passport Game. You won’t want to miss this! Following the opening, the Welcome Reception will be held in the Pacific Ballroom, a time to connect and reconnect over an appetizer with members of our diverse intercultural community. KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: This year’s keynote speakers will focus on the conference theme of “Pioneering Intercultural Leadership: From Awareness to Action”, providing examples and strategies for intercultural leadership in the areas of organizations, social change, and personal effectiveness. Each speaker will highlight information from her/his own area of expertise and offer suggestions for using awareness to take action and create changes in our organizations, communities, and personal lives. Paula Caligiuri, one of the most prolific authors and media voices in cultural agility and global business will provide current research that will be of particular interest to those working with organizations and the global arena. Michael Agee will share his work as a human rights advocate and challenge us to use imagination, empathy and solidarity in creating change. And Valerie Craigwell White will help us explore the limitations and potential impairments associated with a world that is “colorblind, post racial and gender neutral.’’ INTERACTIVE POSTER SESSIONS: This is an opportunity to have directed conversations with your peers about the pioneering work they are doing to advance the field into uncharted territories, and they want your input. Thursday, October 23, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm and Friday, October 24, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm. In the Sellwood, Ross Island and Morrison rooms— right next to each other so you easily move from room to room. Each presenter has prepared 20 to 30 minutes of an interactive presentation with ample time for conversation. This way you can take in two to four posters, moving within the same room or right next door. Presenters will also provide handouts so that if you don’t get to all the posters that you hoped to, you can at least catch a glimpse of the blazing work of this year’s special Interactive Poster authors. SILENT AUCTION: Throughout the conference in the Ballroom, conference participants will have an opportunity to purchase marvelous treasures, from exotic artwork to professional services, and contribute to a worthwhile cause: the Conference Scholarship Program. Stop by during breaks and see what you cannot live without—and feel good about supporting future conference scholarship recipients. A MASTERPIECE OF ART will be created by conference participants as a follow-up to last year’s launch of the SIETAR-USA Living Code of Ethical Behavior. Watch for it in the ballroom—and feel free to add your own creativity. The final Living Code masterpiece will be shared at the closing ceremony on Saturday, October 25 at 3:30 pm. GRAFFITI WALL: Ever wanted to express yourself in writing on a wall? Maybe practice some graffiti? Here’s your chance! During the conference there will be a wall in the ballroom where you can share your creative ideas, suggestions, feedback for next year’s conference planners to consider. Please… tell us what you think! We even provide the pens and crayons – spray paint is optional. DINE AROUND: Portland is one of the Foodie Capitals of the West, and we plan to take full advantage with a special Dine Around to introduce SIETARians to some of the best Portland has to offer. Sign up before noon and meet in the lobby at 6 pm. Thursday evening, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. OPEN MIC NIGHT – It Could Have Been Worse! In the Broadway Room, Thursday night, October 23 from 8:00-10:00 pm. Got a great intercultural story to share? An open mic event - in the style of a Story Slam - means quick, focused, intense stories and engaging flow. There will be a host and a special guest, plus 5 storytellers drawn from a hat. Facilitated by Alex Cleberg and Shelley Morrison. SPECIAL INTEREST AND LOCAL GROUPS LUNCH: An opportunity to enjoy lunch with like-minded colleagues to discuss hot topics and/or connect with your Local Group. We will also introduce the 2014 Scholarship Recipients. Friday, October 24, Lloyd Center Ballroom. SIETAR-USA BUSINESS MEETING: Friday, October 24, 5:15-6:15 pm in the Holladay room. We welcome SIETAR members and everyone attending this conference to attend this brief and lively gathering. Come find out about the “state of the organization” and our vision for the future, meet the Board Members, and vote in the elections. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about your professional society, and enter to win $100 off of next year’s conference! GALA DINNER CELEBRATION, DANCE AND NETWORKING: Join other attendees on Friday evening, October 24 from 7:30-11:00 pm in the Ballroom for the annual dinner celebration. Following dinner and presentation of the Margaret D. Pusch Founder Award for intercultural excellence, the Hot Club of Hawthorne will perform, featuring danceable “old time jazz with exotic gypsy and Latin flavors.” In an adjoining room, the no-host bar and sitting areas will be provided for those who prefer to network and mingle in a quieter atmosphere, or choose to enjoy the music and festivities right next door. Eat, Dance, Network—what could define a better evening? PIONEERING SENIOR SUMMIT – In an effort to acknowledge and support those individuals who have been pioneering leaders in the intercultural field, SIETAR-USA is holding its first-ever, invitation-only day for senior interculturalists.
