Invited as guests of the sponsoring organization, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the students spent March 3-5 in Washington and attended the sessions of the conference, held at the Washington Convention Center. At the conference students listened to internationally known speakers--Vice President Dick Cheney, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, Sens. Evan Bayh (D-IN) and Susan Collins (R-ME), and all three Israeli prime ministerial candidates.
The Trevecca students were excited to be given this opportunity to learn more about Israel and the Middle East. They reported that they were honored to be able to listen to the guest speakers and to be part of this conference.
