The weekend of July 20-23 was our NA reunion celebration and the theme was - Shining light on our tomorrow. The weekend was filled with fun and various activities that involved members and their families. One of our members- Mr. J. Uwagba gave an educational presentation on cyber security.
The annual general meeting (AGM) was presided over by Mr. Niyi Fagbamiye. Questions were raised about the relationship between the North America chapter and Lagos. After extensive deliberation, it was concluded that there should be involvement of North America and U.K. chapters in the decision-making process in Lagos to reflect its global status. North America chapter is, therefore, requesting 1-2 seats at the global executive council. The representatives shall be responsible for improved communication with the global office. The North America chapter executives were later charged by members to continue with honest and open policy in all areas. The outgoing executive council led by Mr. Fagbamiye was later dissolved.
The electoral committee consisting of Pastor Morgan, Mr. Etefia, and Mr. Van-Lare conducted the election.
