SUBJECT: ORR 2003 Consultation – Time to Register!

As you should all know by now, the Office of Refugee Resettlement will be convening the 2003 Refugee National Consultation on October 8-10, 2003 at the Hyatt Regency in Washington, DC. 

These are challenging times for all of us that work with refugees.  Hence, the theme for this year is “New Challenges and Directions in the Refugee World”. We look forward to sharing ideas and concerns as we meet the challenges ahead.

This year, the consultation will be open to all. While registration is open, the overall consultation has seating limitations, so you are encouraged to register as soon as possible.  Please note that the hotel registration deadline is September 12, 2003. 

The 2003 National Consultation will also feature a resource room.  If you would like to set up a booth or share materials on your program, please contact Ms. Cheryl Tyson at 301-270-0841 or by email at: ctyson@afyainc.com.
