Annual Dinner Press Highlights

Dear Fellow Explorers:

We certainly hope you had the opportunity to join us at our recent ECAD Weekend, featuring the most diverse series of events in the history of the world’s largest gathering of explorers. We shared experiences aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid, at the United Nations, and at our gala awards dinner at the American Museum of Natural History.

We did want to share with you, right away, some of the initial and exciting highlights of the television, radio and print coverage given to this historic and unique ECAD weekend. The weekend also generated considerable traffic on Twitter, Instagram, and on our Facebook page.

From all of us on your Board of Directors, please accept our sincerest thanks for your support and confidence as we strive to carry on the traditions and extraordinary achievements of The Explorers Club and truly make our Club the Center of World Exploration.

Yours in Exploration,
Ted
