Ambassadors Roundtable with the Ambassador of Israel
The Council of American Ambassadors held its fourth Ambassadors Roundtable luncheon of 2011 on Wednesday, September 14 in the Anderson Room of The Metropolitan Club of Washington, DC.
Following welcome remarks by Ambassadors Hand and Robinson, Ambassador Abelardo L. Valdez, President of the Council of American Ambassadors, offered brief remarks and led the attendees in a moment of silence in memory of the Council’s late President, Ambassador Charles T. Manatt.
The Ambassador of Israel, His Excellency Michael B. Oren, Ph.D., was the guest speaker at the September 14 event. Ambassador Joseph B. Gildenhorn, Vice Chair and Treasurer of the Council, invited Ambassador Oren to join us on this occasion and introduced him at the event. It was a great honor to have with us the chief representative of Israel to the United States. Attendees felt that this Roundtable could not have been more timely given the recent developments in the Middle East.
