I humbly accept the 35th Presidency of the Korean-American Association of Greater New York. This umbrella organization represents the rights of half-a-million Korean Americans and organizations in the tristate area. It is my wish to continue to lead KAAGNY forward with vibrant and positive energy by following goals.
1.We will elevate our pride and prestige by being even more proactive in relationships with mainstream America in order to gain our practical interests and core benefits.
2.We will continue to make our finances transparent and re-structure our bylaws and will focus our efforts to enhance KAAGNY’s assets.
3.We will form the 35th cabinet which will include all generations, thus becoming a bridge passing down our legacy from generation to generation.
4.And, we will build a Korean-American Heritage Museum which will highlight our precious immigrant history. It is extremely important to communicate our vision with the next generation. It is equally important to embrace all Korean organizations through cooperation and trust.
Finally, we will restore our dignity as the symbolic beacon of Korean Americans.
President Minsun KIM
