Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut issued the following announcement on Nov. 23.
The Southeast Connecticut World Affairs Council (SECWAC) announced today that Rob Hernandez is to speak on ‘Cuba, the Conflicted Isle: can it reconcile its past while creating a new future?’ at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, at the Old Lyme Country Club, 40 McCurdy Road, Old Lyme, CT.
Rob Hernandez, an international business consultant and lecturer on global issues for the National Geographic, universities and corporations, will discuss the current status of Cuba in the context of its historical relationship with the United States. Specifically, Rob will recount the long and often tortured history of U.S.-Cuba relations, describe the reality on the ground today, and discuss possible solutions to the five decades of seemingly irreconcilable differences between the two neighbors.
A reception will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the main event beginning at 6:00 p.m. The presentation is a part of the SECWAC 2018-2019 Speaker Series. For non-members, tickets ($20) may be purchased at the door; ticket cost can subsequently be applied towards a SECWAC membership. Attendance is free for SECWAC members (and their guests). Membership September 2018 through June 2019 is $75; $25 for young professionals under 35; free for area college and high school students.
Immediately following the presentation, SECWAC meeting attendees have the option for $35 to attend a dinner with the speaker at the Old Lyme Country Club. Dinner reservations are required by Thursday, December 6, at 860-912-5718.
Reporters are welcome to attend as guests of the SECWAC Board. Interested reporters should contact Paul Nugent at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-388-9241.
