Job Opportunity – President, United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA)

External candidates are sought for the position of volunteer president of the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA).

With over 1,000 members, UNA-NCA is the largest and most active chapter of UNA-USA, an independent national public education and advocacy organization promoting the work of the UN. With a small staff and budget and many interns and volunteers, UNA-NCA organizes public events, private briefings, advocacy activities, and a large Global Classrooms education program with an annual Model UN conference for middle and high school student at the State Department. The president chairs the board, oversees the work of the staff and volunteers, assists with fundraising, and plays an active leadership role throughout the work of the organization.

The UNA-NCA nominating committee seeks candidates inter alia for the post of president-elect. The committee will propose a slate for non-competitive election in May 2016. The president-elect will serve for one year in that capacity along with current president Ambassador Donald T. Bliss (ret), and take office as president in June 2017 for the first of what could be two two-year terms.

Interested persons should contact nominating committee chair A. Edward Elmendorf at
