We would like to invite you to join Greek-American and Cypriot-American leaders from across the country and Hellenes from around the world at the 29th Annual Cyprus and Hellenic Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. — June 4 – 6, 2013, hosted by PSEKA and CEH. At this time of economic crisis in Cyprus, it is more important than ever that we come together in Washington to press for US support for Cyprus and the end of its occupation and division.
Conference participants will again be meeting with the highest-level administration officials who formulate U.S. policy toward Cyprus, Greece and Turkey. In recent years, we've met with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Suzan Johnson Cook, as well as dozens of other officials from the White House and State Department.
Participants will also be meeting with – as they do every year – over 45 key U.S. Senators and Members of Congress who serve on the pertinent committees and subcommittees, and others, that play a major role in the formulation of these matters.
Attached and below is a conference agenda.
