Visionary International Leadership: An Interdisciplinary Initiative for the New Millennium
CEPA Conference

Speaking Out About CEPA
El Salvador, July, 2000

~Marlon Francisco Salinas Hernández~

As a student in my final year of a Business Administration degree at the University of Central America, I would like to both thank and congratulate you for this marvelous program. My country is surrounded by problems which represent great obstacles in our ability to face the risks and opportunities which confront us at the beginning of this new millennium. My experience at the seminar has filled me with great hope-thanks to this conference I have seen how all the interrelated groups in society are willing to work together to present a united front. I saw how topics which were once matters of dispute in our world are now transformed into the elements which will forge our destiny as part of a globalized society. It is also a source of personal joy to know that there are people like Dr. Rodríguez and his outstanding team of colleagues who, though far removed from our daily lives, are still concerned and ready to help us by traveling from their country to unselfishly share their knowledge with us. In today's dehumanized world, where the meaning of cooperation is left behind in the wake of rampant personal ambition, this work is truly worth of admiration. On behalf of my country El Salvador, I want you to know that your efforts have not fallen on arid ground-on the contrary, your words have been the seed which will be multiplied by the efforts of everyone who has benefited from your work.
