The Shriver Peaceworker Fellows Program is hosting its 6th annual Peace Corps Keynote Presentation November 13 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. The keynote speaker is Bill Josephson, co-author of "The Towering Task," the paper that became the blueprint for the creation of The Peace Corps in 1961. Josephson will talk about the future of the Peace Corps and its role in the 21st century, drawing on his experience with and deep understanding of the founding of the Peace Corps.
Josephson held a number of key positions with the Peace Corps during the 1960s and has remained a close friend and colleague of Sargent Shriver throughout their public service careers. In addition to being a nationally known expert on nonprofit law, Josephson is also a leading expert on the Electoral College, making this November event an especially timely opportunity to hear from him.
