Camden Conference Discussion Series at Blue Hill Public Library
February 5, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Monday, repeating until February 26, 2018
The Blue Hill Public Library will be holding a three session discussion series hosted by former U.S. Diplomat Bob Sargent, in connection with the 31st annual Camden Conference. The sessions will take place on three Mondays in February, the 5th, 12th, and 26th, all from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. The Camden Conference runs from February 16th to 18th in Camden, between the second and last discussion sessions. The BHPL discussion series is free, but space is limited, so registration is required.
This series is designed to help participants achieve optimal benefit from participation in the Camden Conference. In the first two sessions, participants will consider a list of questions deemed relevant and provocative to the theme of the conference, which this year is “New World Disorder and America’s Future.” In the third session, participants will review and discuss findings and recommendations that surfaced during the Camden Conference.
Bob Sargent’s diplomatic assignments have included Belgium, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Tunisia, Turkey and Vietnam. He is a former member of the Camden Conference Board of Directors and Advisory Board and a three-time conference program chair.
Participants are asked to register for the Blue Hill Library discussion sessions using the library’s interactive calendar found at www.bhpl.net or by calling the library at 374-5515.
