The expatriate community faces many unique challenges and this week provides a critical forum for them to communicate with decision makers. We are proud to support them in these efforts.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 12, 2011 —
Clements International, a leading global insurance provider and long-term proponent of the expatriate community, will sponsor a reception Tuesday, April 12 during Overseas Americans Week. From April 11 – April 15, 2011, overseas Americans will descend on the nation’s capital to voice their needs and concerns to key lawmakers.
Representatives from Clements, along with members of Congress and three major overseas citizen advocacy groups, will be in attendance Tuesday night to support the efforts of the Overseas Americans Week (OAW) Delegation.
“We are honored to be involved in Overseas Americans Week again this year,” said Sergio Sanchez, director of marketing at Clements International. “The expatriate community faces many unique challenges and this week provides a critical forum for them to communicate with decision makers. We are proud to support them in these efforts.”
The OAW Delegation is composed of members from the Association of Americans Resident Overseas (AARO), American Citizens Abroad (ACA) and the Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas Inc. (FAWCO). OAW organizations collaborate with the Americans Abroad Caucus, a group of 26 U.S. Congressional members. Formed in 2007, this caucus is the only structure in Washington, D.C. dedicated to addressing issues that affect overseas Americans. Through their combined efforts, the caucus and the OAW organizations have proposed legislation for overseas voting and taxation, and continue to spearhead upcoming legislative proposals.
Over the course of the week, overseas delegates meet with the Consular Service in the State Department, members of the Americans Abroad Caucus and other Congressional offices in order to generate effective communication with President Obama and Congress on issues including voting, taxation, citizenship, U.S. banking services, Medicare and Social Security.
The reception will be held in the Rayburn House Office Building – B369 on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 from 6 – 8 p.m. For more information on Overseas Americans Week, visit http://www.overseasamericansweek.com.
