The Piedmont Triad Council for International Visitors (PTCIV) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit membership organization that builds one-to-one relationships with rising international leaders “one handshake at a time.” PTCIV’s citizen diplomats design and implement professional programs, provide cultural activities and offer home hospitality to international visitors selected by the U.S. Department of State for participation in its International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP).

We are a member of Global Ties U.S.(formerly NCIV) and one of more than 90 local councils in the United States.
