In September of 2014, at the annual meeting of the UNWLA National Board, newly elected Board members discussed their vision for our organization and fine-tuned our mission statement: “Uniting women of Ukrainian descent and affiliation in service, friendship, and dedication in order to promote and develop educational and cultural efforts as well as humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians worldwide.” The UNWLA’s mission has remained steadfast throughout its history; however, the newest members of the Board were able to introduce their own spirit into this statement.
