80-20's New Leaders - more diversity & quality

Good News:

80-20 strived for and achieved DIVERSITY & QUALITY in its new Broad
of Directors! 45% of the its 2011 Board members are now non-Chinese-
although ONLY 15 % of its dues-paying members are
non-Chinese Ams.

80-20's Board now has 1 Caucasian-, 2 Filipino-, 2 Indian-, 2 Japanese-,1 Korean-,
and 1 Vietnamese-American members.Of the six new Board members, 5 are non-Chinese Ams.

Will the composition of the Board and our membership one
day reflect the composition of the Asian Am. community? Hopefully.

An Unfortunate Situation
Exec. Director Daniel Feng resigned for personal reasons, beginning
1/1/2011. To ensure that his resignation doesn't make 80-20 extremely
short-handed, Daniel offered to volunteer 10 to 20 hours per week for
several months. He even stated that he'd volunteer more time if his
personal situation improves. Thank you, Daniel.
