What Makes the Red Cross Unique


CLEVELAND: Mark W. Everson, who became president and CEO of the American Red Cross in May 2007, will speak about how he is focusing on the management and the mission of the Red Cross to strengthen its capacity to help at noon on Friday, October 19, 2007, at The City Club of Cleveland.


In addition to disasters and blood, the American Red Cross is a critical link in an international humanitarian chain that delivers help to the world’s most vulnerable people at their most difficult times. The former commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service now heads a $3.2 billion agency that provides almost half the nation’s blood supply, responds to thousands of disasters each year, helps service men and women and their families, trains millions in lifesaving skills—and relies on donated time, money and blood to do its work.

From August 2002, until his confirmation as commissioner in 2003, Everson served as deputy director for management for the Office of Management and Budget where he provided government-wide leadership to executive branch agencies and chaired the President’s Management Council. He also served as controller of the office of Federal Financial Management.

Prior to joining the Bush administration, Everson was group vice president of finance for SC International Services, Inc. and an executive with the Pechiney Group, one of
France’s largest industrial groups.

Everson also served in the Reagan administration from 1982 until 1988 holding several positions at the U.S. Information Agency and the Department of Justice, where he was deputy commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. While at
INS, he oversaw implementation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

United Arab Emirates and Ohio: Trade Partners?

Reem Al-Hashimy, deputy chief of mission for the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in the United States, will discuss the US-UAE bilateral relationship and how business plays a key role in its strength and depth at noon on Wednesday, October 24, 2007, at The City Club of Cleveland.


As deputy chief of mission, Al-Hashimy is involved with a broad spectrum of issues affecting the UAE-US bilateral relationship, including security relations, trade and economic progress, and social and cultural activities.

Prior to this role, Al-Hashimy served as commercial attaché at the Embassy, participating in negotiations between the UAE and the U.S. for a Free Trade Agreement. The UAE is the single largest export market for US goods and services in the Middle East, and U.S. exports to the UAE have expanded nearly five-fold from 2000 to 2006. In additional to trade matters, Al-Hashimy managed exchange programs for academics and business leaders to help build understanding between the two countries.

Before coming to the U.S., Al-Hashimy worked in the executive office of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. There, her portfolio included economic and social programs for the Emirate of Dubai.

Al-Hashimy earned her B.A. at Tufts University and completed graduate work at Harvard University. She has appeared on several US and international network news programs as a representative of the Government of the United Arab Emirates.
