Global Ties Arkansas Events

UPDATE:  Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Global Ties Arkansas has experienced a hault in programs.

The U.S. Department of State has postponed all International Visitors programs until September 1.  Of course, this could change as we get closer to that date.  Our hope is to be able to resume our work in citizen diplomacy in early June.
