What we're about

This group is an opportunity for people to share their ideas, dreams, and experiences about becoming an expat. Maybe you want to talk to some folks who have lived outside the US before making plans yourself. Maybe you have a dream of living in a different country for a while. Maybe your work is asking you if you would like to join another office in another country.

My name is Christopher, and I am a former expat who lived in Spain for two years from 2013-2015. I intend to move back to Spain in the future, but for now, let's talk about the expat experience from all angles: BEFORE moving to another country, DURING an expat experience, and AFTER the expat experience is over.

Whatever your interests for moving, this group welcomes positive, like-minded folks who want to share ideas and discuss expat living. If you're interested in hosting a get-together, or co-organizing this group, then let me know!

November Future Expats Meetup - Overcoming Expat Fears

Online event

Hi, Future Expats!

Our November 2021 topic is "Overcoming Expat Fears." For future expats, there are so many challenges that fear can become overwhelming and paralyzing. What are you afraid of as an expat in a new destination?

Our November 2021 Future Expat meetup is scheduled for Saturday, November 13, 2021, at 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM EST. Join us for lively discussion and idea sharing... two key components for successful expat experiences!

Until further notice, we will be holding our meetings via virtual videoconferencing, and start promptly at 10:00 EST. PLEASE RSVP to help the planning process. Come join us for the conversation!

A few caveats:
* We are all members of this group for different reasons. Please be respectful of others' perspectives and ideas. You know... be nice!

* Meetups are all about meeting new people. If you see someone you haven't met yet, please go out of your way to welcome them. Plus, starting conversations with strangers is an essential expat skill! :-)

* Event RSVP and registration closes the day before the event.

See you there!
