Don Kraus, CEO of the national Citizens for Global Solutions organization, will be the speaker at our annual meeting Sunday afternoon, April 19, 2009 at the Ethical Society of St. Louis, 9001 Clayton Road (about a mile west of the Galleria).

   Last June Don was promoted to CEO from Executive Vice President with responsibility for the CGS Political Action Committee.  Don was a successful businessman before becoming CEO of the politically-oriented Campaign for U.N. Reform (CUNR) 15 years ago as well as being active in the World Federalist Association (WFA).  He was a leader in the November 2003 move to merge the educational WFA and the political CUNR into a single organization, Citizens for Global Solutions.

   There will be more details about that annual meeting in the next newsletter along with the form for ordering the usual turkey dinner.  The meeting will begin at 3:45 and end at 7:00.  By having the meeting on Sunday afternoon, we hope that some of our members who do not live in the immediate St. Louis area will be able to attend.
