I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the 2014-2016 President of the Taiwanese American Foundation (TAF).
As I begin my term, I would like to say Thank You to each of the parents of TAFers, including past, present and future, for your support over the years. Since TAF was founded in 1980, over 5,000 first, second and third generation Taiwanese have attended our programs, most notably the TAF Summer Conference and that we consider as part of the “TAF Family”.
Our all-volunteer Board and TAF Leadership Team plan for TAF throughout the year, from the Summer Conference to our New Years Party and regional events all over the world. We are planning to expand the network and activities for TAFers and hope that you explore TAF and become involved in the TAF Family and Network.
I would like to thank our Executive Director, Elizabeth Wang, for her leadership of her Staff team over the past year and the tremendous growth of the Summer Conference and especially all of the Program Directors and Advisors who make TAF happen for your children. I would also like to thank the Board and Executive Committee for their operational directives and guidance over TAF throughout the year.
We hope that you find this year’s Summer Conference, based on the topic of Leadership, to be valuable and make an impact on your children who will attend. ED Liz’s team stresses the value of learning, growth and safety to bring this unique program to the Taiwanese Community.
If you have any suggestions for future events, please let the Board, ED Liz or her Staff know so we can continue providing value for your contribution to TAF.
We cannot do TAF without you!
