Hosted at the Midland Library, Saturday 17 August 2016 from 2pm -5pm
Today the VNCO held a ceremony at the Midland Library to introduce the new board serving the 2016 – 2018 term. Among the 75 community members in attendance were community elders, our youngest members under 5 years old and 10 members of the Vietnamese Community of Clark County who expressed enthusiastic support of the new board.
Members of the new board reflect diversity in three key areas: 1) focus on a range of issues that impact our community, 2) age, 3) experience and expertise.
The new board is committed to working diligently to serve our community by providing events that honor and preserve our culture, broaden collaboration with other culturally specific community organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGO) to strengthen our collective voice, and to work toward a democratic Viet Nam.
The broad age representation of the community present at today’s ceremony fuels our optimism for the future of the VNCO, that we can engage and empower young community members to hold leadership positions and be ready to lead the VNCO in the next 2-4 years.
There are many opportunities to engage and fun events planned. Please check our website often for upcoming events.
