We are looking for new board members for the UWC NYC team! If you are interested, please come to this new board member meeting. Email us back if you plan on attending so we know numbers and will probably plan dinner (potluck or takeout for the group). Also let us know if you are interested in joining the board but are unable to attend this meeting.

As a UWC NYC board member you can get involved in any of the areas: Community Building & Networking, Community Service, Recruitment & Outreach and Fundraising.  All that we ask of you is that you attend once monthly meetings and help us organize, execute and promote events/initiatives for UWC NYC. It's a great opportunity to be involved with furthering the UWC mission and help build the UWC NYC community!
