Letter from VietAbroader's Board of Directors 2012
Dear VietAbroader Family,
As our beloved organization is taking this important step in our leadership transition, the new Board of Directors, Anh, Phuong and Cuong would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Khoa Pham, Trang Nguyen, Viet Huynh, Khang Nguyen, and Tu Ngo for their long-time service as Co-Founders and Board Members of VietAbroader. These individuals have not only inspired generations of Vietnamese students to come to the U.S. but also create a network for VietAbroaders to grow and form life-long friendships. We are forever grateful for their work and look forward to learning about their new successes in the future. Khoa and Viet have accepted our invitation to stay on the Board for another year to help us with transitions. We are thankful for their continued dedication to VietAbroader.
We also would like to thank our former Co-Presidents Hieu Nguyen (Bates ’13), Chi Nguyen (Wesleyan ’13) and Minh Tran (Brandeis ’11) for their services in the last two years. Their various initiatives have kept VietAbroader active and always changing for the better. Most particularly, we applaud their effort in bringing VietAbroader conferences to students in Hai Phong and Can Tho, where study abroad was relatively unknown. We offer them our best wishes as they pursue their various passions in life.
Finally, we are pleased to announce the selection of Duy Ha (St. Olaf ’14) and Minh Trinh (Harvard ’14) as the new Co-Presidents of VietAbroader. Ha and Minh have served as the Head of Information Technology and as Co-Chair of VietAbroader Conference in 2010, respectively. We are confident that their continuous dedication and visions will help enhance VietAbroader’s core missions and values.
Friends, our organization has come a long way since the first VietAbroader Study-Abroad Conference in 2005 and this is an important period. While youth development continues to drive our activities / initiatives, our agenda needs a new approach to strengthen our organization’s identity and to connect many generations of VietAbroaders. In the next few years, you can expect a lot of changes, a lot of new initiatives, a lot of enthusiasm coming from the new Board and Executive team. Our goals are to re-establish ties with former members, create a strong network of Vietnamese students in the U.S and develop programs for college graduates. We invite you to join us in building VietAbroader of tomorrow and thank you everyone who has been part of VietAbroader’s history.
Anh Le, Phuong Nguyen, and Cuong C. Nguyen
