State and Local Governments

February 5, 2015 - February 10, 2015

Cleveland will host international visitors from Argentina, Botswana, Liberia, Republic of Korea, Spain, and Tajikistan.  The goal of the project is to introduce the structures and functions of the U.S. federalist system of government, with emphasis on the division of authority and responsibility between federal, state, and local governments;

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields.  Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.  

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Ryan Ouellette, International Visitors Program Officer, at or click here.  To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here
