Please join us on Saturday, October 13, from 3–5 PM, for a reception for David Huebner ’82, U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, at the Brentwood home of Debora and Eric Edmunds ’75 (address to be provided via email upon registration). David was a resident of Los Angeles for many years, where he practiced international litigation law, before he moved to Shanghai in 2007 to open his firm’s office there. He was nominated by President Obama to be Ambassador in November 2009 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in December of that year. He is only the third openly gay U.S. Ambassador ever to serve. Click here to read his bio and here to learn more about him.
Since his appointment, relations between the U.S. and New Zealand, which were poor for many years, have greatly improved, due, many reporters say, to the engaging and tireless work David does. He is a forthright advocate for the interests of the United States in the Asia-Pacific Region and is very popular among New Zealanders. David represents a new breed of Ambassador, championing social media , including his own blogs and facebook page, as methods to communicate with New Zealanders and the folks back home.
After a brief wine and cheese social hour, David will address us on his views of U.S. relations in the Asia-Pacific Region and give us some personal anecdotes about how Princeton prepared him (a public school kid form Scranton PA) to be a U.S. Ambassador. Don’t miss it!
Cost is $5 for Classes of 2007-2012, $10 for members of the Club, and $15 for non-members.
