The new United States Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission, Leslie A. Bassett, will speak during the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 3 which will be held on October 24, 2009 at Pearlmont Inn, Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao. Bassett will represent US Ambassador Kristie Kenney who initially agreed to attend the MBS 3 but had to attend to other pressing matters.
The Mindanao Bloggers Summit 3 in CDO will be Bassett’s first ever Mindanao trip.
Previously, Bassett served as DCM in Mexico.
Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Tinnex Jaraula and the CDO Bloggers (the organizers of this year’s MBS) will be on hand to welcome the new US Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission.
Meanwhile, other speakers during the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 3 include the Philippine representative of Google, Aileen Apolo, and Digital Filipino founder Janette Toral.
Mindanaoan, the designated PR/media relations person for the event, has also received a text confirmation from Atty. Adel Tamano. Tamano, a certified son of Mindanao, will also grace the event.
