Leading professional services firm with more than 5,000 employees in Afghanistan sponsors DC summit on Afghanistan stabilization operations

As the leading provider of interpreter and analyst services in Afghanistan, this event could not be timelier for us. With speakers such as Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad, General Tony Zinni, and counterinsurgency expert Dr. David Kilcullen, we are assured of intelligent, impartial, and certainly diverse discourse on the future stability of Afghanistan.

Mission Essential Personnel (MEP) is the Headline Sponsor of the 2009 International Peace Operations Association Annual Summit (http://www.ipoaonline.org/summit) held Oct. 25-27 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD just outside Washington, DC.

This year's theme, Afghanistan - Supporting Regional Stability Operations, is particularly timely given the ongoing elections and the pending political decisions by the U.S. Government.

"We are honored to sponsor this year's IPOA summit," said MEP CEO Chris Taylor. "As the leading provider of interpreter and analyst services in Afghanistan, this event could not be timelier for us. With speakers such as Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad, General Tony Zinni, and counterinsurgency expert Dr. David Kilcullen, we are assured of intelligent, impartial, and certainly diverse discourse on the future stability of Afghanistan."
