Speaks at UN

Speaks at United Nations

November 14, 2002 - 

Dan Uitti spoke to a crowd of about 160 representatives of Non Government Organizations (NGO) at the United Nations about using the internet.  The talk covered web sites, email, message boards and other internet communication techniques.

The talk took place at the Dag Hammarskjöld Library Auditorium, located in the  Dag Hammarskjöld Library building of the U.N. in New York City. 

Dan Uitti speaks at DPI/NGO Communication Workshop

Mr. Uitti joined other speakers at the Communication Workshop of the Department of Public Information / Non Governmental Organization Section (DPI/NGO Section) on November 14th, covering the general topics of "Affordable Communications Technologies: NGOs Connect".  His segment covered "How NGOs Get Organized On-line to Communicate".  

The talk did not paint a pretty picture in organizing on-line, but described many of the necessary steps that leaders must take to encourage their supporters and members to use this new media.  Many pitfalls, service options, and training issues should be considered.  Clearly, a low cost communication alternative awaits; but planning, policies and training are required to build the group into using the internet regularly.

Dear Dan,

On behalf of the United Nations Department of Public Information and the NGO Section, I would like to thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to share your expertise with the NGOs at our DPI/NGO Communications Workshop on 14 November 2002.

Judging from the positive feedback during and after the workshop, the participants appreciated and enjoyed the workshop. The information provided was very useful in helping NGO representatives to demystify communications technologies and increase their awareness of the importance of such technologies. I would like to thank you again for your presentation.

Affordable communications technologies are very important to non-governmental organizations to promote themselves and to network.

Whenever you have any suggestion or advice for further workshops or briefings, please feel free to share them with us. I hope we can get together for lunch in the near future.

 Please find a photo memento of your presentation, for posterity.


Yours sincerely,

Paul Hoeffel
NGO Section
Department of Public Information
