Regional Growth Strategies

The growth of inviting practices is largely dependent on the sharing of information by IAIE members around the world. Enthusiastic new and experienced members are invited to introduce others to Invitational Theory and Practice and its application in schools and other organizations.

Interested in learning how? Just click on the quick link button below to download the Regional Growth Strategies document. You’ll find lots of ways to share what you are learning about the inviting approach with others.
