Dear Bolahun Family,
Please accept our sincere appreciation for your overwhelming support for Convention 2021. We succeeded in executing our first in-person and Remote Convention because of your love for Bolahun and commitment to BWW. We thank you for your support and commitment. Our decision to implement a proposal by Mr. Richard Zayzay to establish a Social Media platform for dissemination of information among our membership proved to be very effective in reaching out to many of our Bolahun Families. Thanks to Dr. Waritay for setting up the WhatsApp platform. Our host chapter headed by Dr. Lanfia T. S. Waritay, President Garwee Kebeh Johnson, and dedicated DE/PA chapter members did a fantastic job executing Convention 2021.
Elections: The Convention agreed to postpone elections at convention 2021 and instead completed the election of our three elections commissioners (Dr. Lanfia T.S. Waritay, Mr. Harry Moniba, and Uncle Isaac Manjoe). These Commissioners will develop Election Guidelines for us to approve. Election of National Officers will be held in June at Convention 2022.
Venues: We are planning to have two conventions in 2022. The first one will be hosted by the Minnesota Chapter in June of 2022. The second will be in Bolahun in December of 2022. Exact dates will be announced as soon as we finalize discussions with Host Planners.
National Officers: at Convention 2021, National Vice President Dr Vivian Korpo Ballah-Swaray, informed the convention that she is stepping down as National Vice President. The delegates granted her request and Elected Mr. Amos Bongolee as Interim National Vice President. We are grateful to Dr. Swaray for committing more than 4 years to BWW as National Vice President. We are excited to welcome Mr. Amos Bongolee as Interim National Vice President. Mr. Joseph Senah was elected Interim Financial Secretary.
