Australian ambassador to speak in Springfield

The Australian ambassador to the United States will kick off the 2009-10 Ambassador Series, a Springfield tradition that brings people face-to-face with ambassadors from around the world.

Vicki Megginson, associate chancellor for development at the University of Illinois Springfield, said 100 to 130 people have been attending the series, but the sponsors have increased their outreach this year.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if we have more attend,” she said.

Megginson's comments were featured in a September 21, 2009 edition of the State Journal-Register.
