Two great opportunities to meet our international visitors are coming up!



First, we have a group of broadcast journalists (seven visitors from seven different countries) who want to attend the Syracuse Chiefs baseball game vs. the Rochester Redwings on Tuesday, August 25th. We are hoping to have some folks join them at the game.  You will need to purchase your own game ticket ($5 general admission) and refreshments.  The game begins at 7:05 pm and we are anticipating that the group should arrive around 6:30 pm.


Please email ( or call (315-471-0252) Ruth at the ICS office if you would like to go along, and also indicate if you might be able to transport some of the visitors from the Marriott Hotel in Armory Square to the ballpark and back.



Second, we will once again be hosting a group of Open World ( delegates from October 2-10, 2015.  This group of media professionals is all men, ages mid-thirties to mid-forties, working in broadcast and/or print journalism.


If you are interested in being a home stay host for this program, please email Ruth ( or Vicki ( at the ICS office for further information.
