Black Tie International:
Israel Cancer Association USA's Annual Membership Brunch

Israel Cancer Association, USA





WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Ann and Richard Sommer, and Nancy and Ellis Jay Parker III, are co-chairing the 2011 Membership Brunch of Israel Cancer Association USA (ICA USA). The annual event will be held Sunday, December 11, 2011 at the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach. The guest speaker, J. Scott Carpenter, brings many years of experience as a Middle East expert to his topic of “Israel: An Asset at a Time of Revolutionary Change in the Mid-East”.

J. Scott Carpenter is principal at Google Ideas, Google’s new “think/do” tank, where he focuses on bringing technology to bear on countering violent extremism and consolidating democracy in the Arab world. Mr. Carpenter is also an adjunct scholar at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

As the Institute's Keston Family fellow from 2007-2011, Scott was the founding director of Project Fikra, which focuses on empowering Arab democrats in their struggle against authoritarianism and extremism. From 2004-2007, Scott served as deputy assistant secretary of state in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, overseeing the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). In 2006, he was also named coordinator for the State Department's Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives. Previously, as Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Democracy and Human Rights, Scott oversaw the bureau's activities related to the Middle East, China, and Southeast Asia and was a representative to the Colombia policy coordinating committee. From May 2003 to July 2004, he served as director of the governance group for the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) in Baghdad, where he facilitated the formation of the Iraqi Governing Council and the first post-Saddam Hussein cabinet, the drafting and signing of Iraq's interim constitution, and the establishment of the interim Iraqi government.

Before joining the State Department, Scott worked with the International Republican Institute (IRI), a nonprofit organization based in Washington that promotes democratic development worldwide. During his seven years at IRI, he established and served as co-director of IRI's Central and Eastern Europe regional office in Bratislava, Slovakia, overseeing programming in ten countries from the Baltics to the Balkans, including Turkey.

Scott has an M.S. in economics and European studies from Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies, is married and has two sons.

Israel Cancer Association continues to lead the way in groundbreaking cancer research by Israel’s extraordinary scientists. But because ICA receives no government funding, it must rely on private donations to support the fellowships presented to these brilliant scientists. For more information about the 2011 ICA USA Membership Brunch, contact Jill Cooper at
Israel Cancer Association USA, (561) 832-9277.

In addition to fellowships for finding cancer cures, fundraising efforts also support other vital treatment/care projects operated by ICA throughout the cou
ntry. ICA is the largest and oldest health-related organization in Israel.
