On November 18, the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Society for International Development (SID-Washington) hosts its 2015 Annual Dinner at the Ronald Reagan Building. This diverse event brings together more than 600 professionals from NGOs, the private sector, government agencies, universities, and consulting firms to reflect on the year’s priorities and accomplishments in international development. This year, SID-Washington honors Ms. Rhonda Zygocki and Ms. Amina J. Mohammed with its annual “Leadership in Development” award.
SID-Washington also recently announced its 2015-2016 Board of Directors, including the appointment of Chemonics Senior Vice President Melissa Logan as the new Vice President for Chapter Affairs. Ms. Logan, a management and development strategist with more than 20 years of experience, leads the Supply Chain Solutions business unit at Chemonics. She has served on the board of SID-Washington since 2010.
Ms. Logan brings a strong understanding of the role of innovation and collaboration in social and economic development, as well as an awareness of the role that organizations such as SID-Washington play in furthering development priorities.
“With the ambitious international development agenda set forth by the Sustainable Development Goals, organizations like SID-Washington play a key role in bringing diverse perspectives and groups together to ensure that real progress is made,” Ms. Logan said.
