TEGUCIGALPA, M.D.C. – On Thursday, the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) Tegucigalpa Country council formally signed its Charter and Bylaws in a signing ceremony at Banco Lafise.
Founded in 1985, OSAC started as a means for private U.S. companies located overseas to share security concerns. Today, OSAC members include international NGOs, faith-based organizations and academia.
“Time after time in the aftermath of a security incident of natural disaster, one of the most important lessons learned is that no single embassy, business or organization can overcome these challenges alone,” commented U.S. Ambassador to Honduras James D. Nealon. “This is why the existence of groups like our OSAC council benefits all of us, and why it’s success depends on contributions from a diverse membership” he concluded.
