GA Day 4: Contract Fair!

As the NEO, the most important part of any August GA for me is the contract fair. This is where the NEO and National Officer for Research Exchanges (NORE) sign contracts with other countries for the upcoming exchange season – April 2013-March 2014. Each country sets up a table and chaos ensues — other delegates come to check out the proceedings and man their country’s table as NEOs and NOREs frantically run around to sign contracts It’s a fun but hectic two hours for everyone involved. In addition, most tables give out promotional materials related to their country including pins, flags, and stickers. Sometimes students even wear clothes representative of their culutre – my favorite this year was the Japanese kimonos!
