SATURDAY, JULY 16
Exciting things are happening in our local UNA-Dallas chapter. Please join us for our Annual Summer Potluck on Saturday, July 16, from 6-9 pm. It’s a great time to make new friends, enjoy foods from around the world, hear about recent activities, and learn about some BIG plans for the near future.
Twelve members of our chapter attended the United Nations Association of the United States of America Leadership Summit June 12-14, 2016. They will share experiences from plenaries and break-out sessions as well as advocacy visits with legislators on Capitol Hill. And, we will be celebrating the International Day of Friendship a couple of weeks early. (Official day is July 30.)
RSVP to email@example.com by 7/12/16. When you RSVP, we will send you a link with the address and a place for you to sign-up to bring an item for the potluck.
The Dallas Chapter of UNA-USA was recognized with two awards at the Leadership Summit in Washington, DC on June 12-14.
Bill and Norma Matthews received the Arnold Goodman Lifetime Achievement Award at a reception at the U.S. Institute of Peace.
Bill and Norma have been the backbone of our chapter for a quarter of a century. They have educated others about the UN and been strong advocates in support of the UN. They have served in local, state, and national UNA leadership roles. They have planned and/or attended hundreds of events on behalf of UNA-Dallas. They have recruited and mentored new members. They are true ambassadors for the United Nations Association, and we are so pleased that they will be recognized. Congratulations Norma and Bill!
Dallas Chapter received the Earl W. Eames, Jr. Communications Award
