2011 IAJGS Conference: Update


There's just a week left for on-line registration. Have you signed up for all the breakfast, lunch and dinner programs you want to attend?

After midnight EST July 31 — that's next Sunday night! — you can't add meals to your agenda. Some embassy visits and computer workshops will be open for new sign-ups at the conference, until they reach capacity. If you procrastinate, you might miss out.

The Grand Hyatt kitchens are known for their delicious food. Here's just a sampling of some dishes (everything is kosher) you will see at the SIG luncheons:

Garlic Seared Roast Beef
Herb Crusted Chicken Breast Atop a Cannellini Bean and Fennel Ragout
Mediterranean Vegetable Ratatouille with Fresh Herbs


The food at the Gala promises to top all other meals and includes:


Poached Salmon over Pasta and Vegetables
Yellow and Red Gazpacho
Corned Beef with Stone Ground Mustard and Chimichurri Sauce
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Some computer workshops and the visit to the French Embassy are full. Listed below are sessions with seats still open, as of this writing.
