WASHINGTON, DC (01/03/07)–The Jamestown Foundation is pleased to announce that it has added video streaming coverage of all its public events and conferences, joining the ranks of only six major foreign policy and international security organizations in Washington, DC that offer streaming video of their public events. "Video streaming is an important addition to Jamestown’s multimedia offerings and an invaluable communications instrument that will enhance the policymaking community’s understanding of our work," stated Jamestown President Glen Howard. Howard added, "With Jamestown’s ever-expanding coverage, streaming video will only further serve its mission to reach policymakers more effectively and be especially useful to our supporters and donors who reside outside of Washington and are unable to attend our public lectures and conferences. The addition of video streaming will provide our supporters with the luxury of being able to listen in and review the important issues shaping conflict and instability in Eurasia."
