Permanent Mission to the OAS
The Embassy of Grenada in Washington, D.C. in addition to its bilateral responsibilities with the United States of America, also has a major multilateral role, representing Grenada’s interests at the Organization of American States (OAS).
Grenada is one of the 35 Member States of the OAS, having joined on May 15, 1975, signing and ratifying the OAS Charter. This is the forum where Government representatives from the Western Hemisphere or “the Americas” come together to strengthen their relationships, forge agreements on cooperation in a broad range of areas, principally democracy, security, human rights, and development.
Grenada has held several leadership positions within the OAS over the years. Currently, Grenada is Vice-President of the Management Board of the Inter-American Agency for Cooperation and Development (AICD) and President of the OAS Retirement and Pension Fund Committee. The Ambassador is the Permanent Representative of Grenada to the Organization, and was elected in her person to both of these positions. Also, from January to March 2010, Grenada serves as Vice-Chair of the OAS Permanent Council, a position which rotates automatically every 3 months among the Member States in alphabetical order.
