Dear Board Members,
Happy New Years Everyone!
First, I'd like to thank everyone for your support. Being elected as the new president of CCC, I'm very grateful for the trust you've bestowed on me. As I said on the election night, I'm humbled by this honor as well as the tasks before us. CCC is a great organization with tremendous pride and a long history of community service. Our organization's value to the community has recently been further validated by the certificate issued by Governor Rell. I'm mindful of all the great work and accomplishments this organization has achieved over the past 30 years. I am excited about this opportunity to work with everyone and continue improving the life and well beings of people in our Chinese community.
Currently I'm working on pulling together the agenda for our very first board meeting. My plan is to have the board meeting held on Sunday Feb 28th at CCSU from 9:00 to 11:00 (Nancy, please help us reserve a room for our meeting and Edmond, please bring the projector and laptop for the meeting). I would like to ask for everyone's presence at this meeting as we collectively will be discussing the following important topics:
1. Ground rules for the board meeting going forward
2. Criteria for decision making built upon CCC's mission and guiding principles
3. Overall plan for 2010 with project lead identified and project team assigned
4. Review of CCC financials
5. Budget planning/approval process
6. Issue log review and resolution: Welte Hall Rehearsal Charges
Given one of the key goals of this meeting is to identify major projects for the year so we can ensure development detail plans as well as securing necessary resources for each. Please review the attached document (currently it's simply a draft, nothing carved in stone yet, I'm looking for your feedback prior to our first meeting so I can make adjustments accordingly and save us time for items on the agenda) in terms of our agenda as well as the initial list of projects. Should there be other projects that need to be listed here, please let me know so I can add them accordingly. Our goal is to review all the potential projects and finalize our plan for 2010
I know everyone shares this with me, being part of the board is a privilege and this privilege comes with responsibilities. Please make every effort to make this meeting, be respectful of other people's time by arriving on time. Let me know if you can not make it by this Friday 2/19 and your reason so we can document it accordingly. If this date/time does not work for many of you, I will try to propose an alternate date.
I look forward to a productive discussion and a great start for the year, see you all on the 28th.
