INVITATION TO JOIN THE 45TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIONS
OF THE UKRAINIAN WORLD CONGRESS
This year the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is commemorating its 45th anniversary.
The UWC calls upon all of its member organizations to mark this anniversary with various cultural‑educational initiatives, for example, town hall meetings, conferences, round table discussions, youth contests, radio and television broadcasts, to name only a few. The planned events should focus on UWC’s activities, such as enhancing ties among Ukrainian communities around the world, furthering the development of community life, the defense of fundamental rights and freedoms of Ukrainians and strengthening Ukraine as an independent, democratic European state.
Please forward all information on planned events to the UWC office [email protected] to ensure that they are posted on our web site.
Commemorative events can also be organized in conjunction with UWC’s May Appeal and serve as a great opportunity to support our annual fundraising campaign.
We also take this opportunity to inform you about two plannedUWC activities:
Joint commemoration of UWC’s 45th anniversary during the UWC Annual General Meeting (September 8, 2012, Anavyssos, Greece); and
Jubilee 45thanniversary banquet (November 17, 2012, Toronto, Canada).
The UWC is an international coordinating body for Ukrainian communities in the diaspora representing the interests of over 20 million Ukrainians. The UWC has member organizations in 32 countries and ties with Ukrainians in 13 additional countries. Founded in 1967 as a non-profit corporation, the UWC was recognized in 2003 as a non‑governmental organization (NGO) by the United Nations Economic and Social Council with special consultative status.
