THE WORLD METHODIST COUNCIL

Dear members, partners, and friends of the WMC Education Committee,
 
Grace and Peace!
 
As we have been mentioning since last year, there will be a series of important events related to Wesleyan and Methodist education in 2011:
 
1. IAMSCU and WMC Education Committee celebrate 20 years: In 2011 we will be remembering the foundation of both IAMSCU and the EC during the World Methodist Conference in Singapore in 1991. Celebrating this moment, we are publicizing the material on "Education is our World," which rescues part of this history. Please find it attached.Read More
 
2. IAMSCU Conference (July 24-28, 2011): The International Association of Methodist-related Schools, Colleges, and Universities will have its conference in Washington, DC. This event is being organized in conjunction with the annual meeting of the National Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities of the United Methodist Church. The last IAMSCU conference was held in Rosario, Argentina in 2008. Please find the call for participation attached. For more information, see the website: https://www.signup4.net/Public/ap.aspx?EID=IAMS10E
 
3. Education Committee of the WMC (August 1-8, 2011). The World Methodist Council and Conference will be held in Durban, South Africa. This event occurs every 5 years and this is a unique opportunity to celebrate the heritage of the Wesleyan and Methodist traditions and their impact around the world. In South Africa, one among the many persons who felt this impact was Nelson Mandela, who was educated at Healdtown, a Methodist school that will be represented in our program. See attached the draft program for the Education Committee. For information on the WMC and its conference, wee the website: http://www.worldmethodistcouncil.org/
 
I look forward to seeing you in Durban!
