PS The 30
participants so far enrolled in the UTD petroleum accounting class below and are
looking forward to meeting you are from Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, India,
Indonesia, Turkey, Qatar, Pakistan, and Taiwan. (The program traditionally
includes a visit for the international students and their interested DFW weekend
hosts to the working cattle ranch of the late Lamar Hunt near Terrell.)
Returned Peace Corps Volunteers,
Every year the University of Texas at Dallas
host dozens of petroleum accountants from around the world for a special
seminar. (Maria and I have been involved for over 30 years with this
project. ) The 2011 accountants' class will be in
Dallas in May 8 - 28.
If you, or someone you know, would
be interested in serving as a "community host" this year, please let
yourself be known ASAP. This involves being assigned to few
international guests, showing them around the DFW area a little on the
weekends, and maybe, inviting them over for a "meal "with a typical American
family" (you) or other similar things. In other words, just
doing a lot of fun stuff with no long term commitment. You might even
be assigned to visitors from your old Peace Corps country.
Again, the UTD class will only
be for three weeks . So far there are 30 participants registered
from 9 countries.
The local organizer is Will
Wilkins who can then send you more information or answer any questions
you might have. Will
Wilkins's telephone is 214-543-9288, or you can email him at wlwilkins@....
