Dear Members of ACUW,

Thank you for allowing me to serve as President for 2015.  I will continue to promote our club’s legacy through our meetings and activities.  We have a great planning team of Officers, Directors, and Chairpersons to help us achieve our goals. Two thousand and fifteen, the Year of the Ram, will be an exciting year.

My theme for this year is simple: Collaboration and Culture, Fun and Fellowship.  Let’s continue to perpetuate our Chinese culture while having fun with our friends.  Let’s continue to support educational and charitable activities and have fun while doing it. We have worked hard the past few years applying for our 501©3 status.  Now that we have achieved that goal, let’s celebrate and have fun and fellowship with friends sharing the same interests and goals.  Let’s collaborate as we plan for ACUW’s future.

I think we’re off to a great start.  Please help ACUW continue to thrive and grow.  Your Board cannot do it alone.  We count on each and every one of you. 

I hope you will join in our activities for 2015.  We have a great year planned. Most activities are listed in this bulletin.  And if you have any concerns, let us know by calling your Member Representative or any of your officers, directors, or committee chairpersons including myself.  Our names are listed in this bulletin.  We want to keep the lines of communication open.  Remember, ACUW is you, and you are ACUW.  Have a festive and safe holiday season.
