Every member state of the United Nations arrives protecting their sovereignty and interest of their people.

While Americans have been going to the polls to start the complicated business of selecting a president, another leadership change is taking place this year. It’s the change of power in the leadership role at the United Nations. 

That transition will be watched closely by the members of the United Nations Association, a program of the UN Foundation. Chris Whatley is executive director of the US branch of the group, and he was in town recently to speak with members of the Milwaukee chapter and stopped by Lake Effect.
