Member meetings

The Chapter holds member meetings throughout the year to inform and mobilize our members about the UN. In addition to usual Chapter business, we also have a speaker or panel inform us about what is going on at the UN and how we in Orange County can help.

Member meetings are held throughout the year at various locations.

UN DAy gala

Our biggest event of the year! We are excited to have you at our UN Day Gala, celebrating the mission of the UN and bringing our community together to reflect on that mission.

We are honored to have an esteemed guest speaker and are proud to be awarding three local community leaders for their work in seeing global goals on a local impact, as we gather with a pleasant meal and Silent Auction raising funds for a local UN-related cause.

Our 2019 Gala will be held on October 19, 2019 at 7pm
