Monday, October 15, 2007

The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC) has approved the Ukrainian Federation of America (UFA), Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, as the forty-seventh member of the USUBC.

We have been working closely with Vera M. Andryczyk, President and Dr. Zenia Chernyk, Chair, Healthcare Commission for UFA, for several months, regarding the business related activities of the Federation.

The Federation is very active on the east coast, especially in Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.. They have been involved in Ukraine ever since 1991 in a variety of activities, including working with Ukrainian companies on improving their human resources (HR) departments and improving medical training and services.

They are now working with a group of Ukrainian ag companies who operate greenhouses to bring them to Pennsylvania and Ohio to look at new technologies and business practices.

The Federation works with Dr. James Portwood of the Fox School of Business at Temple University to provide HR training in Ukraine.
They are working with several large U.S. pharmaceutical companies and children's hospitals regarding medical training and services through their Healthcare Commission.

President Andryczyk and Dr. Chernyk of the UFA have been very active on the Washington scene over the years promoting Ukrainian causes. They work closely with Charles Dogherty, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives from PA.
