The Network of UNESCO Chairs in Communication (ORBICOM), an international NGO founded in 1974 by a joint UNESCO and University of Quebec venture , held on Tuesday its regular administrative elections and appointed the professor of information and communication sciences at the Lebanese University, and head of Arab League Educational Cultural and Scientific Organization, Dr. May Kamel Abdallah as a new member of its 7-member board of directors. Orbicom is a nucleus for thought and work in the field of communication, vibrant with the diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds of its experts, academics, researchers, policy consultants, as well as media specialists. The NGO which is an alliance of UNESCO Chairs and Associates, aims to establish links between communication leaders from academia, media, corporate and government circles enabling them to exchange information and develop shared projects. To note, the university chairs program of UNESCO is authorized to establish university chairs and cooperation networks between higher academic and research institutions to the aim of building the capacities of these institutions through the exchange of information at the international level.
