The Estonian American National Council (EANC) is bringing its annual meeting to San Francisco for the first time on November 4 and 5, 2016.
These two days of events and meetings have several aims:
• Bring council members together to re-energize and plan for the future
• Celebrate Estonian-Americans for their service and excellence, and honor the contributions of Americans to the Estonian cause with the new “Estophile” award
• Provide a forum for topics of interest and urgency, drawing on west coast participants including Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and innovators and Stanford University Libraries
• Share the EANC’s work with West Coast Estonian-Americans and engage new members
Schedule of events: The EANC holds its annual business meeting on Friday, November 4. We invite you to participate in public panels and view exhibits on Saturday, November 5. A luncheon with local Estonian entrepreneurs and investors will give participants an opportunity to hear from voices in this exciting sector. The gala awards dinner will include a highly notable keynote speaker, special musical guest Laura Remmel, and local favorite Andy Valvur as emcee. Information on tickets coming soon!
Location: San Francisco Marriott Union Square. This downtown location is a great spot from which to explore the Bay Area. The special conference room rate ($209 per night) is available for 3 days both before and after the meeting dates. We encourage you to reserve your hotel rooms early and to mention the EANC, to receive the conference rate.
