The University of Connecticut hosts the International Studies Association’s Headquarters, which consists of the office of the Executive Director and staff. Headquarters is responsible for a variety of activities, ranging from short- and medium-term projects to long-term planning. On a daily basis, ISA staff responds to member inquiries, assists ISA leadership with programming initiatives, and tracks and maintains the financial health of the organization, among other activities.
Throughout the year, ISA staff informs membership about Association and cooperating organization-related news via social media, the ISA blog and newsletter. It provides significant logistical and technical support toward the successful implementation of the Association’s numerous annual international and regional conferences and manages the Association’s growing portfolio of grants. The staff also maintains the members-only Professional Resource Center and ISA job board.
One of the key responsibilities of Headquarters’ staff is to ensure the success of ISA’s Annual Convention in collaboration with ISA leadership. From site visits, managing meeting spaces and securing vendors and sponsors to assisting Convention leadership in the creation and scheduling of events and program items, Headquarters’ staff works diligently to make the Annual Convention a space that membership enjoys participating in year after year.
In short, ISA Headquarters staff is here to ensure that the Association runs smoothly and grows in a way that is beneficial to its 7000-strong members.
