On Friday, May 19, we are planning an afternoon congressional briefing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, followed by an evening reception.  If you decide to come in a day earlier, you are welcome to attend a reception on Capitol Hill on May 18 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the House Baltic Caucus.  This will give you an opportunity to meet and mingle with members of Congress and their staffs and other friends of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. More details will be forthcoming soon. 

You can register and pay (via Paypal) on our website. The deadline for the early registration rate of $200 has been extended to May 10. After that, the rate is $225.
