Vision statement: Through UNA-NCA we can help influence global issues and draw attention to international topics that have faded from the public spotlight. UNA-NCA's leadership, staff, and volunteers want to tell the story of the importance of United Nations and the role that we can play in the National Capital Area. I look forward to helping this organization tell that story. As Vice President of communications, I will work to unify communications across the organization and implement best practices, while increasing the organization's reach and influence.
