If you are from outside the Washington area, be sure to take advantage of CKA’s room blocks at the W Hotel ($299/night) and the Westin City Center ($175/night). Please note that there is a city-wide convention taking place that weekend and rooms will be in very high demand. Book your room early! Finally, we are excited to announce that Ambassador Sung Kim will join Lucy Koh and Gideon Yu of the San Francisco 49ers at this year’s gala and awards dinner on Friday, October 14. We look forward to celebrating Ambassador Kim’s remarkable career in foreign service, which includes serving as the first-ever Korean American U.S. Ambassador to South Korea.
We will be sharing more information in the days and weeks to come, including the unveiling of a new Summit website. But we wanted to be sure you register and book your hotels as soon as possible.
See you soon!
