Aspen may become hub for United Nations effort
Denver Business Journal

The United Nation's Mountain Partnership may find its North American hub in Aspen, the Aspen Daily News reports.
The partnership, which has members in North America but not a centralized presence, is preparing for a global environmental conference in Brazil this summer. Not wanting North America to go unrepresented, a group called the Aspen International Mountain Foundation jumped in with a report on North American mountains and the issues facing them.
Efforts are now under way to see that Aspen fills the role of North American hub.
What is AIMF?
The Aspen International Mountain Foundation (AIMF) is a Colorado nonprofit corporation dedicated to promoting sustainable development in the world's mountain communities. Formally organized in 2001 in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, AIMF evolved over a decade of working collaboratively with the United Nations' Environment Program (UNEP), the City of Aspen, the Aspen Institute, Aspen Sister Cities, and other public and private organizations that produced a series of international conferences focusing on issues facing mountain communities.

One thing bad about these meetings for any of our elected officials attending them, is that they are committing a serious violation, perhaps even a form of treason.. I have heard many people talk about it before, that any elected official attending any secret meeting outside the country with no press or public discussion, is a serious crime..
Of course we know that these people attending could care less about constitutional laws because they are so very very important and above the rest of society, (in their own minds)...They just thumb their noses at the rest of us..
In my opinion the people attending these meetings should be hung by the neck from a tall oak tree.
