An Open Letter from Dr. Christine Durbak, Founder of World Information Transfer
February 14, 2000
On behalf of World Information Transfer, I have the honor of inviting you to attend our Ninth International Conference on “Health and the Environment: Global Partners for Global Solutions”, on April 26, 27 and 28, 2000 at the United Nations, co-sponsored by the Governments of Uganda and Indonesia. This year’s theme is “Solutions for the Millennium.”
As you may be aware, our conferences, held at the United Nations since 1992, are widely acclaimed for their quality of presentations and participants. You will notice from the attached conference agenda that this year’s program contains very important subjects and many distinguished speakers.
We would be honored if you are personally able to attend our conference. We would also like to extend this invitation to others whom you feel will benefit from learning about this very important topic.
Although our conference is free, due to very strict security requirements at the United Nations, you must register in advance by e-mail or fax only.
This letter will serve as your invitation, so please fill in your response below and mail or fax it to us by April 7th, 2000.
