Connecting UN Delegates & their Families

to New York since 1954

Over 65 years in operation, the Hospitality Committee is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing United Nations delegates and their families with programs, events, classes, and opportunities to build relationships as well as helping them gain a broader insight into our country and their host city of New York.  

The UN brings countries together;
