AFLSE Chicago February Newsletter: Parag Khanna Speaker Event and Chicago Council on Global Affairs



I want thank all who attended or supported our recent speaker event featuring David Hale, LSE alumnus and Chicago-based Global Economic Advisor to the Executive Branch and Congress. Mr. Hale's presentation was truly insightful and ground-breaking, and we were also able to achieve our nonprofit fundraising goal to sponsor two young schools in Ghana through Link Community Development's new School Sponsorship Initiative. We also look forward to the upcoming publication of Mr. Hale's exciting new book in May 2011: What's Next? Please click here to learn more about the book and where to pre-order.
