It is with pleasure that I assume the privilege and honor to serve as the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees for UPUA, North America for the 2023 – 2025 calendar years.
As we move forward in this new year, the Board of Trustees is committed to ensuring that this great Association focus on fulfilling its mission to its members in North America and the Urhobo nation worldwide.
To achieve these goals, the Board of Trustees working relationship with the National Executive charged with the day-to day running of the Association will be a collaborative one without an abandonment of its oversight responsibilities.
Finally, I want to assure the entire Association that the Board of Trustees is committed to increasing transparency and communication across its general membership. Suggestions, ideas and initiatives are therefore welcomed from the general membership through their Presidents.
I am confident that in the spirit of unity and harmonious discussions, we can collectively achieve great things for the Association and continue to make a meaningful difference to the Urhobo Nation in general.
Thank you for the confidence bestowed on the Board of Trustees.
The Board of Trustees in turn is making a clarion call to all members of the Association to arise to the higher ideal of Unity and Progress not only in words and anthem, but in spirit and truth.Eguonor me’ yovwi!
