"UNWG Nominating Committee"

Pakistan is a relatively young country, but it has a rich cultural heritage and majestic landscape, located at the foothill of the world’s highest peaks.  The Pakistan community and Pakistani members of the UNWG will present snippets of their beautiful country and friendly people.  We will taste delicious treats and drinks plus presentation of their music and dance.


The UNWG annual election will take place in November.  The election will determine the members who will serve in the Board of 2019. This process starts with the appointment of a Nominating Committee earlier in the year.  The Nom Com will compile a slate of candidates to be voted by the general members in November.  The October General Meeting will present the Nominating Committee, its selection process and election procedure.  All members are urged to attend.
