On March 9, 2013 the Republic of Lithuania created the first Consulate based in the prestigious resort town of Aspen, Colorado, when Honorary Consul Dr. John Prunskis was appointed to the newly formed post.

Žygimantas Pavilionis, Ambassador of Lithuania; Consul Vyautas Lapatinskas (Lithuania); Consul Jonathan Warren (Monaco) at the formation of the Lithuanian Consulate and the Aspen Consular Corps.

Consul Warren met Consul Prunskis at the World Congress of Consuls in Monte Carlo in November of 2012.  At the finale event there, Consul Warren drafted the indenture forming the Consular Corps of Aspen, Colorado.  The founding Dean of the Corps is Consul Prunskis, and two other founding members include the Honorary Consul of Chile in Las Vegas, Paulina Biggs Sparkuhl and Honorary Consul of Monaco in Las Vegas, Jonathan Warren.  Both Consul Biggs Sparkuhl and Consul Warren have consular districts which include Colorado.  The document was executed by the three founding members, and witnessed by numerous consuls at the World Congress last year.

On March 9th, Consuls of Lithuania from Las Vegas and Seattle joined the newly formed Aspen Consular Corps in welcoming H.E. Žygimantas Pavilionis, Ambassador of Lithuania, to open the new consulate.  The events included speeches and traditional dance, followed by a cocktail with the Mayor of Aspen and other members of the local community.
