Message from the President,
In the past 4.5 years we have managed to give the HAC a new lease on life through the successful organization of existing events like the annual picnic, Sinterklaas and Koningsdag, the creation of new events like the Stamppotavond, Nieuwjaarsborrel, and the hosting of one-of-a kind events like the 50th Anniversary and the Indonesian Rijsttafel. We feel that we have continued a valued tradition and, at the same time, made this traditional organization more relevant for the current participants within the community. The organization is financially sound and the events attract many different participants each time.
However, this board has been active for the last 4.5 years and we feel it is time for us to move on so that ‘new blood’ can further evolve the HAC. Unfortunately, finding board replacements has proven very difficult. We understand that not everybody has the time and/or energy to be a board member and that we have had a dedicated group of volunteers helping us these past years. At the same time, as a Board, we have to take a step back to give our usual volunteers and our board members a break. We are going to change the way the events are organized for the coming year. This will create opportunities for new volunteers/organizers to shine and to put their spin on events.
For the coming events: (annual Picnic Sept 13th, Sinterklaas Nov. 15th, Nieuwjaarsborrel Jan 9th) we will be using the SignupGenius service, ‘www.signupgenius.com”, to recruit the volunteers necessary to organize these events. This program allows us to create specific volunteer tasks for which you can sign up. ***Please note, the events will only take place if all necessary volunteer positions have been filled!*** For example:
No Volunteers, No Sinterklaas!!!!
We look forward to all the new volunteers and their ideas!
