Waving the ISAAC Flag


Celebration, it surrounds us
Every nation, all around us…

– from “Wavin’ Flag,” K’Naan, Official Anthem Version


The ISAAC flag was commissioned more than 20 years ago and has been presented to each conference chair or co-chairs over the years: a tangible symbol of the ISAAC conference legacy changing hands every two years. For ISAAC, it’s a reminder that we should be mindful of celebrating our past while looking forward to the future.

When the ISAAC Executive Board met in Toronto last July, the flag was ceremoniously presented by Franklin Smith, ISAAC Executive Director (below, centre) to our ISAAC Conference 2016 Co-chairs, (L – R) Shelley Deegan, Tracy Shepherd, and Tracy Hunt.

ISAAC Conference 2016 is now less than one year away. Watch for frequent updates by email to ISAAC members, and through social media. We hope to see you in Toronto!
