It was a true honor and privilege to serve OCAIR as the 2019-20 Chair. This year has proven to be challenging for most of our members due to the pandemic of COVID-19. In this difficult time, I am hoping that the greetings find all of members healthy and safe.
The activities of OCAIR 2019-20 were guided by three In’s: Inspiration, Involvement, and Innovation. We hoped that the OCAIR 2019-20 inspired and involved our members in interesting and innovative way! A series of professional development activities was organized from August 2019 to May 2020 by our talent and dedicated 2019-20 Steering Committee members (SC) and volunteers, including:
Special appreciation goes to Dai Li and our Award Selection Committee members for the leadership and the award selection process.
Reviewing what OCAIR achieved last year, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere appreciation to all SC members and volunteers who shared news, insights, and opportunities with our community. It’s my great honor to work with all of you!
Recent situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have created a new normal for daily learning and communication. I am proud that our members continue with the OCAIR’s caring spirit — “OCAIR, We Care!” to collaborate and exchange ideas actively via different platforms. With more talent, creative, and dedicated colleagues joining OCAIR and working in the SC, I believe that OCAIR will grow stronger as we connect each other more and will have another productive year.
