April 10th  CIGI Tour
Fifty members and partners enjoyed the tour of the new Centre for International Governance Innovation facility organized by Brian Hendley.
We were ably guided by Colleen Fitzpatrick, Declan Kelly, and Kevin Dias. Al Watson thought he was back in Ireland.
 Andrew Beamish manned the parking lot gate. In spite of the cold windy weather no one tipped him!
Twenty-six enjoyed a healthy  lunch at Cora's.
