70 YEARS LATER, COUNCIL COMMEMORATES ANNIVERSARY OF UN CHARTER SIGNING
In 1945 shortly after the Bay Area Council was first convened by then Gov. Earl Warren, one of the organization’s first acts was to attract and welcome the United Nations to the Bay Area. At the United Nations Conference on International Organization, often referred to as the San Francisco Conference, 50 countries convened that year to sign the historic Charter formalizing the United Nations. Today at City Hall, the UN is commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Charter signing in the city that played an instrumental role in its history. Bay Area Council President and CEO Jim Wunderman is honored to participate in the momentous celebration featuring Gov. Jerry Brown, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and over 1,000 diplomats and local and international dignitaries.
The Bay Area Council looks forward to celebrating its own 70th Anniversary at our Annual Dinner & Business Hall of Fame Awards, which will be held on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. Please mark your calendar!
