NCBA CLUSA COO Amy Coughenour Betancourt elected to InterAction Board of Directors

Continuing to be a leader in the non-governmental organization (NGO) community, NCBA CLUSA—through its Chief Operating Officer for International Programs Amy Coughenour Betancourt—will be representing NGO voices as a member of the Board of Directors for InterAction, an alliance of more than 180 NGO members.

As a member of InterAction, NCBA CLUSA has contributed to working groups, led discussion of best practices at conferences and was the recipient of the Data Quality Award for Interaction’s NGO Aid Map last year. With a voice on the Board of Directors, NCBA CLUSA's commitment to collective impact is even stronger.

“I am proud to represent NCBA CLUSA on the InterAction Board of Directors,” Coughenour Betancourt said. “As a membership organization ourselves, we understand the importance of convening and collaborating across sectors. As active InterAction members, we continue to be leaders in the NGO community.”

NCBA CLUSA was recently a signatory to the collective NGO community call, led by InterAction, for the passage of the Global Food Security Act. The bill recently passed the Senate and must be reconciled with an earlier House version before being signed into law, providing a comprehensive global food security strategy for the U.S. Government.

InterAction is an alliance of more than 180 NGO members that partner, share best practices and combine their voices to achieve greater collective impact. InterAction convenes, leads and influences coordinated action to drive policies, practices and behaviors that advance the elimination of extreme poverty and vulnerability, strengthen human rights and citizen participation, safeguard a sustainable planet, promote peace and ensure dignity for all people.
