UNAC Calgary members and Board of Directors meet for the virtual 2019 Annual General Meeting

Members of United Nations Association of Canada (UNAC) – Calgary branch joined the Board of Directors yesterday for the 2019 Annual General Meeting.

If there was one word to use to describe what 2019-2020 was all about for UNAC Calgary, it would be – “change”.

While our external activities were paused due to COVID-19, behind the scenes, things were moving and shaking as we focused on organizational governance, including re-evaluating our board structure and hiring new Board of Directors.

In October 2020, we onboarded two new directors – Director of Community Relations, Wanda Rumball, and Director of Communications, Rida Rehmani. We also created the new position of Director of Innovation, which sees Jasmine Cha in role. And, in early 2021, we look forward to introducing a new Director of Program Development.

More the merrier! Joining the UNAC Calgary team in furthering our strategic priorities, are volunteers on three new sub-committees: Communications, Community Relations, and Program Development.

Our 2021 vision exciting…

Planning is underway to expand the scope and reach of our work to connect and promote individuals and organizations in Calgary whose work aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Also, in development – a new program to engage with Calgarians in implementing SDGs on a local level.

Here’s to a brighter and (fingers crossed) a COVID-19 free 2021.
