Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Senator Robert P. Casey Jr will address "US Foreign Policy toward North Korea: Achieving Nuclear Disarmament." at the ICAS Winter Symposium on February 13, 2008 in Washington DC.

United States Senator Robert P. Casey Jr is a member of the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In addition, he also serves the following Committees: Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry, Banking, Housing & Urban Affairs, Special Aging, and Joint Economc.

Born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Bob Casey, 47, graduated from The College of the Holy Cross in 1982 and spent the following year teaching fifth grade and coaching eighth grade basketball in inner city Philadelphia for the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Bob received his law degree from Catholic University in 1988 and entered the practice of law in Scranton.

As a two-term Pennsylvania Auditor General and Pennsylvania State Treasurer, he has compiled an impressive record of accomplishment. Bob has been a fiscal watchdog who made nursing homes safer, child care more affordable, government more accountable, and led the fight to reform Megan's Law to better protect Pennsylvania communities and children. As Auditor General - the Commonwealth's independently elected fiscal and public safety watchdog - Bob aggressively fought to stop waste and fraud involving tax dollars and improve the effectiveness of government services and agencies. His efforts directly resulted in changes that have saved Pennsylvania taxpayers more than $1 billion. Bob will bring this same accountability to Washington. Official returns from the November 7th, 2006 election show that Bob had 2,392,984 votes or 58.7% of the vote vs. 1,684,778 or 41.3% for the incumbent Senator. The vote margin was 708,206 or 17.4%.

Bob and his wife, Terese, were married in 1985 and live in Scranton with their four daughters: Elyse, Caroline, Julia and Marena. Bob is the eldest son of the late Governor Robert P. Casey and his wife, Ellen. Throughout his public career, Bob has been guided by the legacy of his father, and the principle that, "All public service is a trust, given in faith and accepted in honor."

Thank you.
