We are delighted to welcome Alexia D'Arco, YPFP's global President, to New York on Tuesday May 1 to speak with our members. Alexia has served as President since December 2017 bringing tremendous experience, a renewed energy, and fresh ideas to YPFP's strategy and operations.
This is a great opportunity to ask all and any questions you have about the vision for YPFP in the coming years, the group's near and long-term priorities, how we are working to improve the membership experience, and anything else that you have been reflecting on during your time with YPFP.
Over the past ten years Alexia's career has spanned three continents and a variety of professional roles centered around foreign policy and higher education, including several years working in Japan and Germany.
Alexia has worked for the State Department political-military affairs team at Embassy Tokyo and the office of the Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan covering security assistance, defence cooperation, counterterrorism, and planning for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear incidents.
