Jordanian American Business Association (JABA) to be
the host organization and has begun organizational
discussions. We intend to allow JABA to charge for
participation in order to cover expenses of venue, etc.

subcontractors, with the bulk of the time devoted to
breakout sessions. Post will work with PMO to identify
