About GCIV

The Georgia Council for International Visitors is a 501(c)3 nonprofit international exchange organization. Each year, we welcome over 500 emerging leaders from more than 100 countries. These distinguished guests of the U.S. government represent politics, government, the media, non-governmental organizations, education, public health, the arts, business and trade, international security, and various other fields. Over the course of six decades, more than 330 program participants have gone on to become presidents or prime ministers of their countries, including France’s Nicolas Sarkozy, India’s Manmohan Singh, and Mexico’s Felipe Calderon.

Local professional counterparts host visitors at their places of work to discuss best practices. Georgia’s K-12 students share their unique perspectives with visitors during carefully-designed school visits. Members invite our distinguished visitors home for dinner and show them around town. And we offer unparalleled global networking at the International Consular Ball and more than 50 other international networking and global learning events annually.
