Conference Acrefeu d’Octobre 2014

mercredi 1er octobre 2014, par Christian Millet

Our President the Lieutenant-Colonel Patrick du Tertre is happy to advise that we have reached an agreement with the Langham Place at 400 Fifth Ave (at 38th street – tel : 212-695-4005) to host our first conference of the 2014-2015 cycle with general Petraeus.

Price for ACREFEU members (and one guest) is set at $70.00 each (members in temporary financial difficulties pay half price)

Price for non ACREFEU members is set at $90.00 each.

Payment will be exclusively by cash or check written to ACREFEU. Please kindly come prepared with the right amount of cash or with a check already prepared to avoid a bottleneck at the door.

We will open the doors at 18:30 with a champagne reception offered by our dear friend Christian Millet.

The event will start at 19:00 sharp. We have a lot of grounds to cover.

As usual we will start with the news of the association. This time they will be centered on events that were organized to celebrate the 70th anniversary of D-Day on both sides of the Atlantic, and which our association helped to fund and promote. Notably, the commemoration by “The French Will Never Forget” at the Statue of Liberty. A movie will be shown. Please try to be on time. I believe it is well worth it.

Then we will give you news of the CDR-EU (the operational command of French reserve officers in the USA). The French Army Attaché : Col Jacques Aragonès is making the trip especially from Washington and will have a few words to share with us.

Then we will have the pleasure to see French Ambassador to the UN and our friend François Delattre, bestow the Légion d’Honneur onto our friend and Vice-President LCL Christian Millet, who is making us all very proud.

It will then be my honor to introduce general Petraeus who will speak to us on geopolitical issues followed by a Q&A.

Diner should be served around 20:45.
