Dear Members and Friends,
We’re excited about UNA this year with all the activities that have been happening around UN75. And we would like to take this opportunity and share with you some updates from Pasadena Chapter’s Annual Meeting last night. Guests and chapter members had attended.
Paige LaCombe, our advocacy chair presented 2019 highlights from our Chapter to our guests. Under Daria Makuch’s leadership, our 2019 was filled with prosperity and joy. We also had a successful turnout from the members within our community.
The result of our election is as follow:
Judith Harris, President
Jon Hainer, Treasurer
Michelle Kuei, Secretary

Or Model UN...
Half a Million Americans have participated in Model UN.
MUN has seen rapid growth over the past several decades and several of today’s leaders in law, government, business, and the arts participated in MUN – from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, to Chelsea Clinton, to actor Samuel L. Jackson.
The Pasadena Chapter offers in‐class training for high school classes. This equips participants with an understanding of UN processes and grounding in simulations so they are ready for full engagement in a fantastic conference.
