Globalization—Working Together and Celebrating Our Differences
San Francisco! The name conjures images of the Golden Gate Bridge, China Town, Russian Hill, Union Square, Cable cars, Fisherman’s Wharf (eating Dungeness crab), countless beaches, and quaint enclaves. The city has enchanted and inspired many poets, song writers, artists, food connoisseurs, and now, dare we say it -- academics.

It certainly inspires our imagination.

With the advancement of supply-chain technologies, the globalization of commerce and lowering of international trade barriers continues to gain momentum. As the world seemingly contracts before us, cultural exchange is in full swing as the more we work together – the more we notice how different we are from one another. Ultimately, this globalization and multiculturalism give meaning to our working together. Thus, the chosen theme, “Working Together and Celebrating our Differences”, embodies not only our 2012 meeting but the city of San Francisco as well.

Come join us in our celebration of working together, overcoming our differences, and appreciating who we are and how we are different!
