Administrative/Biographical History

The National Council of International Visitors established the Atlanta Council of International Visitors (ACIV) in 1962. The National Council of International Visitors founded ACIV to provide cultural orientations, professional programs, and home hospitality for international leaders and professionals who traveled to Georgia. The Council was part of of the professional exchange initiative of the United States Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). Visitors were selected by American Foreign Officers overseas, and included representatives from government, politics, the media. education, the arts, public health, business and trade, and other fields. In 1973, ACIV merged with the Atlanta International Student Bureau. In 1986, ACIV was renamed the Georgia Council for International Visitors, which maintains an office in Atlanta.
