On April 27th, nearly 30 alumni, both North American and Middle Eastern, gathered in Washington DC, at the second annual North American Arava Alumni Network Conference. The alumni participated in a morning of ice-breakers as well as deep discussion about integrating into their communities after their time at the Institute and how they would like to see the alumni network grow over time.
