Laurette Bennhold-Samaan, who has been involved with SIETAR for decades, has recently joined the SIETAR DC leadership team. In partnership with Georgetown University, SIETAR DC has conducted a study in an effort to revitalize the local group and capitalize on the incredible intercultural talent in the DC area. The report was summarized at the September meeting.
