Dear Members and Friends of the Washington DC Chapter of Partners of the Americas,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Chapter’s Board of Directors and as your Vice President for Membership. I want to update you on our dues structure and tell you about some exciting upcoming activities. The chapter is designing new projects this year, both independently, in accordance with the new Partners open structure, as well as with our partners in Brasilia. To help us plan, we need your involvement. Please complete the following brief survey and cut and paste your responses into an email. Send them to Denise Decker at Please remember that your responses are voluntary:

  1. Name(s)
  2. Address
  3. Phone Number(s)
  4. Email Address(es)
  5. Activities in which you would be interested in volunteering; (check all that apply):
  • Arts and Culture
  • Citizen-Centered Leadership
  • Education and University Outreach
  • Hospitality/Hosting Visitors
  • Lecture Series
  • Program Development
  • Recruiting New Members
  • Youth Engagement
Now regarding dues: Last year, the Chapter Board voted to reinstitute a membership fee that had previously been charged to individuals and families. Doing so, it was felt, would enable the chapter to remain solvent in order to carry out the important work of the organization. Annually, individual members will be asked to pay $25 and families will be asked to pay $40. To pay your 2017 – 2018 dues and remain a member of the Chapter:

We very much look forward to hearing from you and sincerely hope that you will continue as an active member of the Chapter. Together, we can foster international understanding throughout the hemisphere. If you have any questions, please email or call me, using the below contact information.

Chapter Vice President for Membership
