2020 TAICEP Conference

TAICEP is a membership organization for anyone involved in the specialized field of international credential evaluation. Our members represent higher education institutions, independent evaluation agencies, ENIC/NARIC offices, government ministries, licensing authorities, examination boards, awarding bodies, and other organizations. At each TAICEP annual conference, credential evaluators from around the world, both those new to the field as well as those with years of experience, come together to learn, to share knowledge, to network, and to promote the interests of our unique industry.

Though we are unable to gather in person in Glasgow Scotland as we had hoped (at least this year....), the 2020 TAICEP Virtual Conference will build on the success of our five previous conferences in Toronto, Chicago, Rome, Philadelphia and Vancouver. In a virtual environment, we will continue to share our similarities, understand our differences, and work for the common good.

As a virtual conference, twice-daily live sessions will be offered throughout the month of October, using Zoom Meetings. Because sessions and events won't overlap, attendees can participate in everything that interests them- no more tough choices! You can join much more than you would in an in-person 3-day conference, and for a significantly reduced fee. We know that 35+ sessions, plus other networking opportunities spread over 20 days is a lot, which is why we are recording all sessions as they happen. These recordings will be available to conference attendees, so whether or not you are able to join each session as it happens, we have you covered! As an added benefit, each TAICEP 2020 Virtual Conference registration fee includes a free one-year TAICEP membership or membership renewal (for current members).
