TNRPCV Board of Directors with NPCA’s World View Magazine, Fall 2014

The 2014 Peace Corps Connect conference was held in Nashville, TN on June 19th, 20th, and 21st. It was a great success, as RPCVs from around the nation gathered to enjoy great entertainment, innovative presentations, and each other’s company.

In the most recent WorldView magazine, the conference was highlighted in two articles. One article highlights the many events of the conference and mentions the work of TNRPCV. The other article showcases Dr. Surin Pitsuwan, who won the Harris Wofford Global Citizen Award at the conference.

Check out the articles and conference videos, linked below.
