Feedback: It's really great to hear from all of you. Out here in Utah we have a very small organization but hopefully growing. We have a UNICEF event on Tues. and are collaborating with Gandhi Alliance, a local Turkish group and UN Women on AAF. We have a UN Day event planned also. Can I ask if our request for a speaker has been received?

Feedback: This subject is a helpful subject. We are finding that partnering with organizations is more productive in carrying out our UNA mission. One of our partnerships that is becoming more fruitful is our partnership with the state led refugee task force in our area. This is the coalition that supports the settlement of refugees in Tampa Bay. Clint Elbow of the Tampa Bay, FL chapter.

You asked how we start collaborations? With the Gandhi Alliance group and the Turkish organization, we began with their interest and linked it with our own to help one another, if you will.

If I may add.....sending young people to the Leadership event in DC was a great investment for us. Interesting you should mention YP - here in UT we just added a young businessman to our board who is reaching out to the community and we have 30 new people coming to our UNICEF event.....very hopeful.
