A Seminar on Good Governance organized for the members of Mali's National Assembly took place on April 19, 2008, at the National Assembly headquarters. The opening ceremony was chaired by the President of the National Assembly, H.E. Dioncounda Traore.

Fifty Members of the National Assembly attended the opening ceremony; 42 of them attended the entire conference and were appointed Ambassadors for Peace. Forty-seven members of their administrative staff also attended the conference. "This seminar enabled us to be better equipped for our political, social, and cultural mission," said Hon. Modibo Kane Cisse. He also expressed appreciation for the teaching about family values.

A UPF delegation made up of Mr. Hamad, Rev. Tokuno, and Parfait Dena was received by Prime Minister of Mali, H.E. Modibo Sidibe; the President of the Constitutional Court of Mali; and the Governor of the District of Bamako.
