As we begin a new year, UNHCR’s Regional Office for the USA and Caribbean invites you to join us as we gather with NGO partners for an overview of plans and priorities for 2014. We will have the opportunity to introduce new staff, discuss the structure and roles of the various Regional Office units, and briefly present our 2014 advocacy plans and priorities on both global and domestic issues. We will welcome initial feedback on these priorities and look forward to opportunities to enhance our joint advocacy throughout the year.
The agenda is as follows:
8:30-9:00 Coffee and Pastries
9:00-10:00 UNHCR Presentations
- Welcome and Overview of Regional Office Washington
