The guest speaker, Nominsuren Munkhuu, Director of Program for Lantuun Dohio USA, was introduced.
 
Lantuun Dohio is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to eradicate human trafficking and protect children from violence, neglect, abuse and exploitation in Mongolia and around the world. The organization believes that a child who grows up in a loving and caring environment is less susceptible to becoming a victim of human trafficking and/or turn out to be an abuser. Therefore, their main approach is to work with children in vulnerable areas from a very young age and engrave self-worth and respect on their innocent minds before a dark shadow nests in it.
 
Nominsuren has been working in the nonprofit field for over six years, specializing in gender-based violence and anti-corruption fields. Throughout her professional career, she has worked with an innovative crowdfunding platform, grassroots organizations and development consulting firms. She currently works at the Europe & Eurasia Division of the American Bar Association's Rule of Law Initiative where she supports rule of law programs in Central Asian countries. Nominsuren received her Master's degree in Social Work with a concentration in Social and Economic Development from Washington University in St. Louis.
 
President Lisa McCurdy adjourned the meeting promptly at 1:30 pm.
