Welcome to
Sweet Home Alabama!

IFSO's International Family Orientation Program (IFOP) Sessions 1 and 2 are two-day in-person events for international officers' spouses and dependents ages 18 and up to learn about the U.S. culture, regulations and laws, and more. 

We will cover all the need-to-know information for your time in the U.S., like car seat regulations, healthcare, and severe weather preparation.  IFOP will introduce you to local volunteers and other international officers' spouses to build lasting friendships. 

Informative videos and the IFSO
River Region International Officer Family Handbook are available for all international officers and dependents.

International families, for more information and IFOP details, please join the IFSO News Facebook group and sign up for orientation using the registration form below.  You will find the IFSO River Region International Officer Family Handbook, links to briefings, contact information and more in the Facebook group. 

IFOP 2022 Session 1 will be held on June 14-15, and Session 2 dates in August will be announced soon!
