      The National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) selected Chicago as the
      host
      city for the 2004 NPCA National Conference. The site selection was
      announced on February 2nd during the NPCA’s winter board meeting in
      Providence, RI.

      The Chicago Area Peace Corps Association (CAPCA) in conjunction with
      the
      NPCA will hold the four-day conference from August 5th to 8th, 2004,
      supporting the chosen theme Peace Corps 2004: Celebrating a Legacy of
      Service. The conference coincides with CAPCA’s 25th anniversary.

      In keeping with the theme, CAPCA will be inviting leaders in peace and
      advocacy to speak and will be presenting awards of recognition to
      strong
      legacies within the Peace Corps family. Workshops presented during
      the
      conference will cover a variety of topics, including: international
      affairs,
      stateside advocacy of international projects, global education and
      international business practices.

      Conference participants will have the opportunity to work as
      volunteers in
      the Chicago area or promote peace and Peace Corps awareness through a
      5K Fun
      Walk/Run. Attendees are also encouraged to attend the International
      Marketplace, an event encouraging artisans in Chicago and around the
      nation
      to exhibit their wares, and the Career Fair, bringing together
      organizations
      and universities interested in internationally-minded persons with
      backgrounds in grassroots development.

      CAPCA is currently looking for the support of other interested
      organizations
      in the Chicago area and nationally. Potential presenters,
      volunteers,
      sponsors or those with any additional questions should contact the
      NPCA 2004
