Members' Day at the UN:

2017 Recap

Hosted by the UNA-USA Mid-Atlantic Region

Friday, February 17, 2017, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Thank you for participating in UNA-USA’s annual Members’ Day at the United Nations!

In 2017, a record number of UNA-USA members and UN supporters met in the General Assembly Hall at the UN Headquarters in New York City to participate in a day of dynamic and informative discussion on the most pressing issues facing the United Nations. Members heard expert presentations on topics like refugees, conflict resolution, and sustainable development, and networked with community leaders, academics and students, and representatives from think tanks and globally-focused organizations. Members also advocated to U.S. leaders, including Members of Congress and U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, in support of refugees, full funding for the United Nations, and strong U.S.-UN relations. Please see below for links to recordings of 2017 Members’ Day, photos from the event, and more.
