I am honored to announce the organization of the new Executive Council (2006) for our Alumni Association. We have a wonderful group of alumni who have agreed to serve on the Council, to help me with maintaining the excellent tradition of this organization, and with taking on new tasks planned ahead.
After many discussions among us, we have come up with a list of issues that should be taken care of:
1. With years go by, the number of overseas alumni has increased dramatically. What started as a small “club” among people who mostly know one another (the “old” gang), has grown to a large organization, involving alumni in many countries, representing more than 20 different class-years. In order to facilitate more active participation and to have better representation, a formal Executive Council should be established (see below). Starting in 2006, we aim at a council with fixed number (12) of members, with each member serving 3 years. When term is up, the individual member(s) will rotate off, replaced by new member (s) (by volunteering, nomination, and voting). Since this is the first year we are adopting this policy, we have arbitrary assigned the year when term expires for each council member. This change will be reflected as an amendment to the by-laws (Chapter 3 Organization; a separate letter will propose this for approval).
2. The officials of the council will consist of a President, Vice President, President-Elect, Treasurer, Communication Director. The last 2 positions will be somewhat permanent. Currently, the Communication Director is Dr. Yidao Cai. This brings to the next item.
3. I am very happy that several past presidents have agreed to serve on this special council to help me with the new challenges. Others have insisted that younger people be included in their places. I want to take the opportunity to specially thank Drs. Thomas Zheng and Ke Ren, the first 2 presidents, for their special contribution in the earliest (and thus most difficult) phase of this organization. Also, Dr. Yidao Cai, who established, and has tirelessly maintained and updated our beloved website, adding new features in a timely fashion, and greatly facilitated information sharing and communication among us. He has done all this with passion, purely as a selfless service to us, without regards to personal gain or other agenda. It’s safe to say, without his efforts, this organization won’t be in existence. For these reasons, he deserves the gratitude from all of us. Thank you Yidao!
4. The council members will be listed on our web site, with a brief biography attached to each, to facilitate communication among the alumni and the council members.
5. For those who are registered, please actively engage others whom you know to become registered on our alumni web site.
6. For class 79, Dr. Zhinan Yin (Yale University) proposed for an on-line gallery for family photo sharing, which has been nicely established by Yidao. This gallery has turned out to be very successful. Yidao has graciously agreed to expand his service for all other classes. If you’d like to start one for your class, please contact Yidao (yidao . cai @ uth . tmc . edu). You may check this website now (http://www.wuda-alumni.org/hbmu/class1979/gallery/).
7. To increase the awareness of accomplishments from alumni, and sharing news on important events, a special forum on our web page will be established, containing links to new publications by alumni. Yidao will send out detailed instruction on how to submit linking information, once a paper is ready in electronic publication phase. Please don’t hesitate in participating. The first phase: please submit any paper that you consider really important or “high-caliber” (high impact factor journals, breakthroughs, etc). Another area will be announcement of promotion, new job (position, title), national award, mentioning in news, etc.
8. Lastly, the idea of establishing an Overseas Alumni Foundation (海外校友基经会) is closer to reality through many discussions. The basic purpose is to provide a vehicle for many of us to give (whatever amount) to the students based on merit and/or need, through an award. This doesn’t have to be a lot but the gesture should show great encouragement to those who receive it. I will send out a separate letter to propose this, and to provide details. So please have your check book ready.
