Advisory Council Co-Chairs Joint Vision Statement:


We are excited to work with the members of UNA-NCA’s experienced and diverse Advisory Council (AC). Our vision is to foster and build the strength of the 60-member AC by engaging current members and recruiting new leaders from academia, government, CSOs, business, philanthropic institutions, and international organizations. We will seek to encourage active and varied participation by the AC in the activities of the Chapter through financial support and voluntary commitments to roles as mentors, speakers, resource specialists and advocates, in committees and other activities and programs. With our different backgrounds and shared commitment to multilateralism, we hope to offer dynamic leadership to UNA-NCA as Advisory Council Co-Chairs.
