Peace Corps Beyond: Peace Corps Connect 2016 — September 22-25, 2016: The Annual Conference of the Peace Corps Community

E&E RPCVs will be there. Will you?

Peace Corps Connect is the Peace Corps community’s annual conference hosted by the National Peace Corps Association and its local affiliate groups and the 2016 conference will be held in Washington D.C to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Peace Corps.

E&E RPCV is planning programs, social events, and networking geared specifically toward RPCVs from Ethiopia and Eritrea. New Board Member, Amanda Sutker, and her fellow RPCVs in the DC area, are hard at work planning the events. They have held a block of rooms for Thursday, September 22 – Sunday, September 25 at the Crystal City Marriott at a rate of $109/night.  To reserve your room, please call Marriott Reservations at 1 (800) 228-9290 or (703) 413-5555 and identify yourself as a part of the Ethiopia/Eritrea RPCV group.

Save the date: September 22–25, 2016 and watch for details on our group  Facebook page and a future issue of The Herald.

Volunteers interested in making a 15-minute presentation at the Ethiopia & Eritrea RPCVs group meeting should send an outline and presentation proposal to Amanda at amsutker@gmail.com by August 1.

In addition we will join our colleagues who have served around the world in celebration of 55 years of Peace Corps recognizing the impact that Peace Corps has had both home and abroad, and the hopes for the future.
