Welcome Message from
Welcome to the So. Cal UNA-USA website and to a new year with endless possibilities. I am honored to serve as your new President and am looking forward to building on our successes and strengths, achieved by working together with the most capable leadership of our immediate past President, Mel Boynton. Thank you Mel for your outstanding service these past 4 years. Please visit this site often for updated resources and Chapter and Division events. This is a very important year, as the Millennium Development Goals timeline is nearing conclusion. Your So. Cal. Division culminated 2013 by hosting a Post-2015 meeting to discuss the successor plan to the Millennium Development Goals. Our UNA-USA Executive Director, Chris Whatley came from Washington DC and spoke to the 120 people in attendance. There is still an opportunity to participate in the formation of this agenda by going to myworld2015.org, if you haven’t already voted for your priorities for the new development agenda. Your opinion counts.
