- be within affordable travel distance (the International School of Myanmar in Yangon, a potential new member some years ago, proved to be too far away);
- not be overstretched by its current city and domestic leagues (another AISA member candidate school in Beijing already belonged to large Beijing and China leagues and, in the end, the school decided it could not enter yet a third league);
- have the same sports seasons as the current members (not as likely as you might think); and
- have suitable facilities and hosting capabilities (especially homestays).
AISA ADs anticipate a new membership application will be made in the 2015-16 year by Busan International Foreign School (BISF) in Busan, South Korea. BISF looks like a good fit for AISA. The school will go through a thorough 2-year application process before a final decision is made. Stay tuned...
