Dear Friends:

We at the International Focus would like to thank you for your support. International Focus will continue to facilitate strategic meetings between leaders from around the world and leaders in our own community, thus making an important contribution to U.S. foreign policy. Your membership and participation in our programs means that YOU, your families, and your friends have the opportunity to shape the ideas and perceptions that individuals have about us as people and as citizens of the United States. YOU have the opportunity to serve as a cultural ambassador! This type of citizen diplomacy is key to our ongoing success in a global marketplace.

International Focus will also continue our grass roots efforts, working with nearly 60 different ethnic groups throughout the Triangle Area, to support cross-cultural communication and understanding, serve as a community resource, and host the International Festival of Raleigh.

It is our sincere hope that you will consider membership and become part of International Focus today. While we do receive grant funding to support our programs and events, this funding does not cover all of our expenses. Your support is essential to our success.

As a member of International Focus, you may choose to take part in any number of activities including:


  • Develop connections with dignitaries and entrepreneurs from around the world


  • Provide homestays (multi-day stays in your homes) for visiting international guests
  • Offer home hospitality (dinners in your home with family and friends) for international emerging leaders and diplomats


  • Receive free and/or discounted entry into special events and receptions, including the International Festival of Raleigh
  • Receive complimentary access to events focusing on relevant global issues and highlighting visiting international delegations


  • Gain access to valuable community networking opportunities and professional resources
