ISS meets with Baroness Amos

UN Under Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Baroness Amos, welcomed ISS' International President Douglas Lewis and Governing Board Chair Bob Miles on 4th November at the UN Headquarters in New York.

The meeting was made in recognition of the federation's 90th anniversary.  Baroness Amos congratulated the Network, of which ISS-USA is the U.S. member, on achieving such a wonderful milestone during which time almost 7 million children and families have been assisted. She also reminded us that the need for our unique social-welfare assistance to individuals and families has never been greater and that the United Nations Humanitarian Organisation supports our reform and modernisation program.

Governing Chair Bob Miles is the former Board Chair of ISS-USA, and continues to act as a member of the ISS-USA Board.
