Frequency of Meetings: Once a year in the spring

Participants: College and Guidance Counselors in Switzerland, Southern Germany and Northern Italy.

Location of meetings: We have met regularly in Basel, Bern and Geneva. This year’s meeting is being hosted by Webster University, who is hosting a Counselor Day on Thursday. They have kindly offered the use of their facilities for our SGIS Counselor Meeting on Friday.

We have been meeting regularly since 2003 to network, discuss issues relevant to Counselors and to share information. We have professional presentations as well round table discussions. We also contact and support each other via e-mail throughout the school year with specific questions.
