and the 8th Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference
Friday, February 19, 2016
Members’ Day at the UN is one of the most important gatherings for UNA-USA during the year, and is a great opportunity for members to network with fellow UN supporters from around the country and hear from top UN voices. Thank you to those who participated in what was the largest gathering of UN supporters in the U.S. on a single day. It is exactly the kind of dedication the UN needs as it looks to take bold action and create a more sustainable world for us all.
Speakers included: Cristina Gallach, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, United Nations; Ambassador Sarah Mendelson, U.S. Representative to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations; Kyle Lierman, Associate Director of Public Engagement in the White House Office of Public Engagement and President Obama's Liaison to young Americans; Ambassador Matthew Rycroft, Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom to the United Nations; and Ambassador Dina Kawar, Permanent Representative of Jordan to the United Nations.
