Meet your 2020-2022 National Council Representatives!

The UNA-USA National Council consists of more than Regional Representatives who serve as ambassadors for the 11 UNA-USA regions. Regional Representatives are elected to two-year terms in order to support local activities that fulfill UNA-USA’s mission to inspire, educate, and mobilize advocates. As liaisons between regions, the National Council and the UNA-USA National Office, Regional Representatives offer a voice and forum for over 20,000 members.

Thank you to those who participated in the recent regular election. We are pleased to announce the 2020-2022 UNA-USA National Council who will begin their term this June.
