IS THIS AN INTERIM OR
ANNUAL REPORT?
  Interim Report

LIST SIGNIFICANT
ACTIVITIES THE COMMITTEE HAS DONE SINCE THE LAST REPORT:

 

The Public Relations/Fundraising Committee started the ball rolling in early September this year. Maria Fung and Yi Liang discussed how to
motivate committee members to encourage their involvement in committee
activities. It was necessary for the group to clarify whether or not CALA will
be printing the directory again next year or if everything will be web-based as
suggested in the D.C. meeting.

Maria Fung and Yi
Liang decided to submit a survey to the committee members.

1)     
Explore
the previous donor list. Once the donor list is ready, each committee member
will contact donors who belong to their regions.

2)      Publicize
CALA by informing the media of the activities of our members, including: what
they have done and what they will be doing

3)      Start
fundraising after Chinese New Year.  We will
be putting together a list of former donors and distributing the names among
our members based on location.   

After the Co-Chair Maria Fung
sent the questionnaire to the members, 6 of 8 members responded.  Donor
list will be created and divided by regions before New Year.
