Pausing Membership Applications from Russia

We express deep concern about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and stand in solidarity with those affected by the violence. After consulting with our community, we have decided to respond by halting economic transactions with Russia. This includes:

  1. Suspending all new and renewal membership applications from Russia;
  2. Suspending all new conference attendance applications from Russia;
  3. Directing our partners to refrain from accepting any institutions based in Russia;
  4. Terminating representation in Russia.

Additionally, we are supporting humanitarian efforts and providing assistance to our trainers, learners, and partners in the affected region. We will continue to monitor the situation and join global efforts to promote peace.
