MMA strives to be a productive agent to facilitate the establishing and sustaining of a vibrant and strong Chinese community in the Peel Region.
October 25th marked a new start of MMA – Mississauga Mandarin Association. A press conference was organized by newly restructured MMA team and held at Peel Chinese Community Service Hub to launch a new strategic plan by MMA. The 3-year plan (for 2013 – 2016) outlines MMA’s vision, mission, value, and short-mid term goals. It also provides guidelines for the improvement and development of MMA’s organization construction and operation optimization.
MMA board members and their volunteer team were excited to have been joined by nearly 40 distinguished guests from all walks of life. Among them were MPP Dipika Damerla; Mississauga City Councillor Ron Starr; Deputy Consul-General of the Consulate General of PRC in Toronto Wu Dongmei; Program Manager at the Ontario Trillium Foundation Gilmar Militar and representatives from governments, charities and community service agencies.
MMA’s president Gary Gu delivered his presentation illustrating how MMA is going to be a productive agent and to provide a platform for civic engagement. What made the presentation stand out were a comprehensive survey that MMA has conducted in Peel Region, as well as Gary’s passion toward the Chinese Community, his unique perception of MMA’s role and his unshakable confidence in MMA team.
Following Gary’s presentation, the floor was given to Vice President James Zhou and Petrus Tung, Board Director Weidong Gui and Wella Zhang to give a few words about MMA’s ongoing and planned activities respectively. All presentations surely have left great impression to all participants, effectively raised MMA profile and once again boosted the morale of MMA team.
