Thank you very much for your workshop proposal to present at the Veterans For Peace 2015 Annual Convention. Workshops are an important part of what makes the annual convention an informative and energizing experience.
We are extremely excited about this year’s convention themed Peace and Reconciliation in the Pacific. This year is our 30th Anniversary. For three decades veterans, who have come to know that war is a depraved and futile endeavor, have waged peace in an effort to abolish war. Thank you so much for your efforts to forward the mission of Veterans For Peace.
We have received nearly fifty workshop proposals for this year’s convention. Unfortunately there are not enough breakout rooms or time for all the proposed workshops. The task of determining which workshops will be accepted is turning out to be an enormous challenge as we have many very strong and relevant candidates. Regrettably we must pick somewhere around thirty.
We must also change our time line to May 29th to announce which workshops have been chosen. We apologize if this causes you any inconvenience, but we want to make sure we do this right and with all the quality candidates, it is taking more time than originally anticipated.
Thank you once again for your workshop proposal. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
