Democrats Abroad Lyon is pleased to announce that Christopher Crawford, the US consul to Lyon, will speak to our chapter members via teleconference on Thursday, September 3 at 6:30pm. Mr. Crawford will discuss life in the State Department and his many varied experiences while on assignments in Kabul, Paris, East Timor and Sydney.
Mr. Crawford has a fascinating biography. He was born and raised in Salt Lake City. Before joining the State Department, he served in the U.S. Army, including a tour of duty in Iraq and was a law clerk for the Air Force. He has also done humanitarian work in Cambodia and Brazil.
Following the presentation, there will be a question and answer period for you to pose questions about Mr. Crawford’s experiences, about State Department services or other topics.
The audience for this event is limited to US citizens and their family members; no journalists are permitted. There is no fee for the event but we would appreciate your RSVP. Upon RSVP, you will receive the link to the teleconference.
