HDI Expresses Its Gratitude to Its Congressional Advisory Board Members Retiring at the End of the 117th Congress

The Humpty Dumpty Institute (HDI) works around the world to inform and foster dialogue amongst critical stakeholders on key global issues. We do this through our programs with the U.S. Congress and the United Nations, engaging young people, supporting cultural and sports diplomacy, and working on humanitarian programs. We greatly appreciate the advice and guidance of our bipartisan Congressional Advisory Board (CAB) as we fulfill this mission.

As the 117th U.S. Congress draws to a close, we would like to thank those Congressional Advisory Board Members who will be departing.

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Congressman Albio Sires (D-NJ) were founding members of the CAB being among its first members in the early 2000s. Ms. Maloney and Mr. Sires gave us crucial guidance as HDI started its trajectory as a leading NGO fostering dialogue.

Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) has been a CAB member since 2014. Her knowledge of issues of importance concerning science and technology was crucial as we crafted international programs in support of U.S. business interests in these fields.

Congressman Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) has been a CAB member since 2019 when he provided amazing leadership for an HDI-organized Congressional delegation to visit the Port of Antwerp. As the Co-Chair of the Congressional PORTS Caucus, Mr. Lowenthal was a forceful advocate for U.S. business interests.

The Board and Staff of HDI sincerely thank Congresswoman Maloney, Congressman Sires, Congresswoman Johnson, and Congressman Lowenthal for their guidance and assistance.
