【环球华语2020年7月27日】Toronto, July 18, 2020 – The Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto (CCC) held its Annual General Meeting via Zoom on July 15, during which the board announces the appointment of Mr. Alan Lam as the new Chairman.
Mr. Alan Lam has been serving on the CCC board for the past 20 years, during which he held the Vice Chair position for the past 3 years. With Alan’s background as a professional engineer, a land developer and home builder, he was the Chair of the CCC Phase 2 Building Committee and has led operations and many successful projects at CCC. Since the outbreak of COVID‐19, Alan has risen to lead CCC during the most difficult time of its history.
Dr. Adrian Cheung, the immediate previous Chairman, decided to step down as his current 3‐year term came to an end, to spend more time with his family. Dr. Cheung will remain an active board member. We are deeply grateful of Dr. Cheung’s tireless and strategic leadership steering CCC to advance with the times, and nurture younger generation leaders. We are looking forward to working with Dr. Cheung in the many years to come.
“My heartfelt appreciation goes to the various CCC boards, donors, sponsors, volunteers and staff for their strong support and contributions during my term of chairmanship. The adversity of the pandemic has offered us great opportunities to learn, grow, and break through new dimensions. With Mr. Alan Lam’s proven track record, I am very confident that he will lead CCC to build a brighter tomorrow”, said Dr. Adrian Cheung.
“I’ve been so privileged to work side by side with Dr. Adrian Cheung for the last 3 years who has been instrumental in building a new organization structure and infrastructure to encourage openness and cooperation. I am grateful Adrian will stay on the Management Team for another year. Equally, I’d also like to express my sincere thanks for the overwhelming support and vote of confident the board of directors and members of CCC have entrusted in me.” said Alan Lam, the new Chairman of the Board.
“CCC is facing tremendous financial challenges due to the disruption of COVID‐19. I am committed to working with all both internally and externally to advance CCC’s legacy during the recovery and beyond. The most immediate priority is to shift our strategies for resiliency and growth, to counter financial deficit due to the temporary closure of the Centre and prepare to reopen when it is safe to do so”, added Mr. Lam.
Meanwhile, the Board welcomes Mr. David Woodfield to join as a new director. The Chairman has also appointed Mr. John Leung, Mr. Joe Chen, Mr. Wing Man as Senior Vice Presidents and Dr. Sean Zhang and Ms. Jennifer He as Vice Presidents, effective immediately.
