Dear UNICCO Colleagues:

It is with great pleasure and humility that I assume the 2015-2016 chairmanship of our wonderful organization, now in its 40th year of being the voice of the community. I have been charged with establishing a vision for The Organization and implementing that same vision. Allow me to outline my particular vision for UNICCO.
1. Improved operational efficiency of The Organization by engaging an Association management firm to serve as UNICCO’s Chapter’s chairman;
2. Increased membership of The Organization to over 1000 active members by the end of 2017;
3. Increased members and professional interaction within The Organization by assigning all UNICCO chapters to a local UNICCO chapter;
4. Increasing value-proposition for membership within The Organization, in particular by the
Development of Leadership Development programming for members, and newly register member.
5. Providing support for the development and growth of local UNICCO chapters;


The success and implementation of these initiatives will not necessarily come to fruition during the first year of my administration. With that, it will be necessary for every member, and to do their part for UNICCO’s success. In the meantime we each have to ask ourselves the question, “why am I in UNICCO?” One of the best responses to this question is, to create an environment for fostering better understanding among Nimbaians in America, as well as seeking to improve the economic, educational, and political opportunities for the people of Nimba County, Liberia;

“…I’m in it because I’m a Nimbaian; it’s where I belong. It’s the place where the people I respect and admire most who do what I do are recognized and understood in the framework of UNICCO. It’s the place where I’ve made the best friends, had my self-worth reinforced by those in similar circumstances, and I’ve learned that I am not alone in the things I encounter in my day-to-day practice. It’s a place where all of the people speak my language, share common values, and for the most part, similar goals, and aspirations. It’s a place where everyone around me knows and understands what I do and admires (or envies or despises) how I do it. In many ways, it’s my professional and spiritual home.”
I would add that, I feel that it is, simply, my obligation to the mission of The Organization. I have felt this obligation since my introduction to UNICCO as a member. I hope that you will feel the same obligation long enough to help shape UNICCO into the organization that is should become. Thank each of you for the trust that you have placed in me as chairman. Please know that it is my honor and my privilege to do my part, in the service of UNICCO.


Thanks
