New Board For Year 2018-2020 Is Established
On August 18th, 2018, Olympia Area Chinese Association (OACA) hosted the annual BBQ party at Pioneer Park. Due to it being another year of election, the new OACA Board was elected and established on this day.
In order to easily transition between boards for future terms and make OACA more active, the current OACA Board made a decision to allow more volunteers to join the board. Namely, except for the President position, each of the other 4 positions (Vice President of Admin, Vice President of Education, Treasure, and Secretary) can now have more than one volunteer. If this system works very well, the OACA will make an amendment in the OACA By-laws to either create new positions or increase the maximum number of volunteers in each existing position (excluding the President position, as mentioned above).
For this new term, 7 candidates would like to join the new OACA Board, creating the youngest team of OACA Board members up to now. They are vigorous and have lots of ideas to improve OACA and support the Chinese School. We greatly appreciate Mr. Haisheng Mou, the current Vice President of Admin, who will lead this new board and help create a smoother transition between Boards.
New Board Member Lists:
Mr. Haisheng Mou - President
Mr. Yuanlong Ge - Vice President of Admin
Mrs. Yan Dai - Treasurer
Mrs. Yiru Lien - Vice President of Education
Mr. Bing Zhang - Secretary
Mrs. Chun Wang - to be determined on the first board meeting
Mrs. Ruth Qi - to be determined on the first board meeting
Ms. Toy Kay, the founder of OACA, hosted the new board installation ceremony. Due to her age, this will be her last time in hosting this ceremony. Mr. Gang Ma, the current president, will do the future installation ceremonies on behalf of her.
Lots of delicious home-made food
