This day provides an opportunity for UNA-USA members to attend special briefings and panel discussions regarding the most pressing issues on the UN’s agenda.  The event is a great benefit to members, as they gain full access to the UN and see the importance of their commitment, support and work toward a strong U.S.-UN relationship.

Conference attendees will have an opportunity to meet with high ranking UN officials and to engage in topical discussions with some of the most prominent foreign policy shapers of our time.  This year’s conference offers a unique preview into: Rio+20 (The UN Conference on Sustainable Development) before the conference in June; the evolution of UN Peacekeeping operations globally; a discussion of what comes after 2015 in relation to the MDGs; and the growing assertiveness of the Security Council in dealing with peace and security in the 21st century.

Guest speakers and panelists will shed light on the challenges and opportunities faced by Americans and the United Nations system in today’s increasingly interconnected world. More details to come!
