Working with Neighbor Chapters

Marin is an active member of the UNA Northern California Division, which sponsors the annual InterGenerational Model UN. Neighboring UNA chapters often work together to co-sponsor events. We let our members know about these nearby events so you may attend and learn more about the work of the United Nations and bring that knowledge back to our community.
