Do you enjoy beer? How about beer and friends? WorldMontanaSM will host its first ever Diplomats on Tap that will satisfy both your taste buds and sense of community. This event will be an opportunity to allow Bozemanites to expand their knowledge of international issues. Quarterly, we hope to gather internationally-minded individuals to take part in a discussion about global issues, many of which affect us in some way.WorldMontana’s first Diplomats on Tap will coincide with our annual membership meeting. Here, we will update our members on the impact of our non-profit’s work in the community. Later, we will listen to a presentation and participate in a discussion with beer in hand. This Diplomats on Tap will include hors d’oeuvres prepared by Food for Thought. For those who are not so inclined to beer, we will also serve wine. Join us at the Weaver Room in the Emerson on Wednesday, April 24th at 7:00 p.m. for an enjoyable evening.
BOZEMAN, MT – Shortly before the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Bozeman citizens who wanted to actively participate in the increasingly globalized world established the Montana Center for International Visitors (MCIV). Twenty-five years later, this organization reaches a turning point. MCIV will change its name to reflect the expanding scope of the organization; WorldMontana: Center for Diplomacy and Leadership.
Founded in 1987 WorldMontanaSM acts as the Rocky Mountain wrangler for the US State Department’s Foreign Leadership programs in addition to organizing many government and private international exchanges linking Montana to countries and cultures far beyond our borders. The name change reflects the non-profit’s growing scope of work as well as the new programs it has embraced in recent years.
While WorldMontanaSM will maintain its focus on education and exchanges, its portfolio is expanding to include leadership development. Our mission is to further the cause of citizen diplomacy thru global exchanges, community engagement and leadership development.
WorldMontanaSM is an affiliate of the National Council for International Visitors (NCIV) based in Washington, D.C. We are one of 95 U.S. non-profit centers dedicated to promoting global understanding through citizen diplomacy. One of the ways WorldMontanaSM fosters global understanding is by facilitating the International Visitor Leadership Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. In Montana, we host approximately 150 international leaders through this program each year.
