In September of 2010, Partners for a New Beginning (PNB) was formally launched at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) annual meeting in New York, NY. As the Steering Committee comes together one year later, we would like to assess our progress as well as chart our course forward to ensure that we continue to deliver meaningful results on the ground.
In the year since our launch, Partners for a New Beginning has achieved impressive outcomes. Thanks to the leadership of our esteemed Steering Committee, our partnership with the U.S. Department of State, the tireless support of the PNB Secretariat, and most importantly, our partners abroad, PNB has formed local chapters in Algeria, Egypt, Indonesia, Morocco, Pakistan, the Palestinian Territories, Tunisia, and Turkey, and has firm plans to launch chapters in Jordan and Mauritania by the end of 2011.
This meeting will be an important opportunity to bring together all of the members of our Steering Committee and our PNB Chairs to discuss PNB’s lessons and triumphs from the past year and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of us.
