BBC Conference a Success!

(sorry for the below formatting – cant quite get it right but its Friday night so…)

 

In case you couldn’t make it to the BBC Conference just thoughth I’d let you know that it was a real success. Lots of new faces came and there was great participation from universities and corporation. We got updates on the Global Service Fellowship Bill directly from Senator Feingold’s legislative aide and had a great keynote by Senator Wofford and David Caprara (plus a pretty good marketing panel with Christina Heyniger, Ed Wilson, Steven Rosenthal and yours truly).

 

For those curious who actually made it, below is a participant list. Looking forward to the next conference in March and then on to Singapore in June!
