The Portland conference and reunion began with an online conversation between Jackie Spurlock and Doug Schermer. The 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps was in progress when Jackie suggested we organize a small reunion in Portland in conjunction with the Portland based American Iranian Friendship Council's annual Persian festival.
Expecting at most 75 to 100, the word spread across the country and nearly 300 people attended. At this conference the Peace Corps Iran Association was formed.
John Limbert was the featured speaker.
