BOSTON – The Armenian Relief Society–a United Nations-accredited non-governmental organization–has become an active presence in and around UN circles.
The ARS was among some 100 representatives of US-based NGO’s to attend an introductory meeting and discussion session hosted by US Ambassador to the UN William Richardson– immediately after he took office.
ARS representatives also attended the 35th session of the Commission for Social Development at the United Nations from Feb. 25 to March 6. The Commission implemented its responsibilities stemming from a summit held in Copenhagen in March 1995.
The ARS also participated in meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women’s 41st session–between March 10 to 12 at the UN.
