03 October 2013

Washington, D.C. - Owing to the shutdown of the United States Government as a result of the unsuccesful attempt of the U.S. Congress to break an impasse over appropriation measures, the U.S. House Committee of Foreign Affairs and the House Republican Conference will no longer be able to host the Filipino-American Meetup in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 12, 2013.

Below is a copy of the letter dated October 2, 2013 from Representative Cathy Morris Rodgers, Chair of the House Republican Conference, regarding the postponement of the Meetup until further notice.
