TAICEP 5th Annual Conference

TAICEP is a membership organization for anyone involved in the specialized field of international credential evaluation. Our members represent higher education institutions, independent evaluation agencies, ENIC/NARIC offices, government ministries, licensing authorities, examination boards, awarding bodies, and other organizations.

At each TAICEP Annual Conference, credential evaluators from around the world, both those new to the field as well as those with years of experience, come together to learn, to share knowledge, to network, and to promote the interests of our unique industry. Building on the overwhelming success of the previous four TAICEP conferences, this year we gather in Vancouver to share our similarities, understand our differences, and work for the common good- truly "Making Connections in Credential Evaluation".

Service Project

New for 2019!

The Service Project is an extracurricular activity for those who might be interested in giving back to the local community.

VAST is the largest center in British Columbia for refugee mental health, working with refugees from over 100 countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. Programs and services are offered in over a dozen languages, including Arabic, Farsi, French, Mandarin, and Spanish. VAST supports the mental health of refugees who arrive in British Columbia with psychological trauma as a result of torture, political violence, and other forms of persecution on the basis of race, religion, gender identity, and sexual orientation. VAST also operates a community kitchen, emergency food bank and collects clothing donations.
