The term of the current board of directors will expire on June 30, 2016. Therefore, we will start the nomination and election process based on the bylaws. Please see the enclosed nomination forms and instructions. Note that only the members who registered on chpams.org can be nominated, endorse and vote for the candidates. Definitely you are one of them!
I'm so honored and humble to serve this wonderful organization in the last two years. It is the best non-profit organization I've ever volunteered on and the experience is terrific! My board of directors contributed significant efforts to make critical decisions that move the organization forward; so many volunteers work behind the scenes to contribute everything they can contribute to this organization. Making so many new friends and learning so much from them!
I've already informed the board that I will step down as the President after June 30. I believe newly elected leadership can develop more potentials from this great organization. I really appreciate all your support in the past two years and hope you can support the new leadership as you support me.
We encourage more members with the leadership skills and potentials to step up and serve on the board. One of the important missions for CHPAMS is to provide leadership training to our members so they can develop well in their own careers. The board has appointed me, Adam Chen, and Roman Xu, as the nomination committee. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact any of us.
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and best wishes for you and your family to have a wonderful Year of Monkey!
