Jalsa Urubshurow

"Nomadic Expeditions was founded after Mongolia’s peaceful revolution in 1990, when Jalsa Urubshurow, a Mongolian American, made his first visit to his ancestral homeland. During the visit, the Prime Minister recruited Jalsa to expand Mongolia’s accessibility to western travelers. Jalsa has been an instrumental force in promoting Mongolia. In 1990 he was authorized by the Mongolian government to found the U.S.-Mongolia Business Council, a Washington-based nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding bilateral economic and trade relations. He continues his efforts to promote Mongolia and remains an active board member of the U.S.-Mongolia Business Council." [1]

"Mr. Urubshurow was recently elected as Advisor to the Tolstoy Foundation, and as the first foreign member of the Board of Directors of the Zanabazar Museum of Fine Arts in Mongolia. He also is the founder and Chairman of The Nomadic Foundation, a non-profit 501(c) 3 tax-deductible charitable foundation devoted to the preservation of Mongolian and Central Asian cultures." [2]
