A remarkable opportunity to tour Israel and her neighbors this fall from October 26th through November 12th is still open for applications for members of CNI and supporters of the CNI Foundation until September 15. This tour will come only weeks or possibly days before the projected peace conference called by President Bush. It will be a unique opportunity to see the preparations and reactions to the conference in Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. Don't miss this unique chance to represent your country as a "citizen diplomat" meeting with and interviewing both government and opposition leaders in these countries.
The delegation members will meet in Washington DC on the morning of October 26 for a briefing at the DACOR Bacon House and members will depart for Tel Aviv on October 27. Former Ambassador Robert Keeley, a 34-year career in the Foreign Service of the United States from 1956 to 1989, will lead the delegation through the region. The trip will cost $6,000, which includes all airfare, ground transportation, hotel accommodations and meals.
Again, registration for the trip will close September 15, and please call Shannon O?Hara at 202-863-2951 x301 to indicate your interest in joining the group. More information about the trip and the application forms are available on our website www.cnifoundation.org.
