Dear Fellows,

In celebration of the 50th anniversary year of the White House Fellows Program, we are looking forward to an historic turnout of Fellows for the Leadership Conference and Gala Dinner October, 22-24, 2015. It will be a wonderful celebration of this remarkable program, and I hope to see you there!

It is not too early to start making plans with your Fellow classmates to participate in these October events. A number of classes celebrating anniversary years already have plans underway. Hotel rooms have been set aside for our conference, so you can make your reservations now.

Stay tuned for updates on the events. We have scores of Fellows hard at work on the 50th Anniversary, but we can always use more help. If you have suggestions or want to participate in the planning, here are people you can contact:
