I am extremely grateful to be serving as the Chairman of our great organization this season.
It is an honor to be entrusted with this office, and I look forward to aiding the GCIOBA NA family in our pursuit of continued success. In addition, I want to recognize and applaud the amazing achievements of the last leadership under the Chairmanship of my classmate Adeyinka Adenekan. The new leadership and I are eager to build on their excellent accomplishments.
We have many tasks ahead of us. We will soon complete our membership drive, aid the incorporation of our Canadian old boys’ chapter, and extend the GCIOBA NA association into Mexico. We will soon begin the process of amending our existing constitution, establishing our own foundation, accurately recording the history of our organization from its inception to now and focusing on our goals for the future of our association. Throughout the year, at our various chapter events, we will also be celebrating the 25th year anniversary of the GCIOBA North America Branch; this will be a festive year for all of us. Our celebrations will culminate at the Endo in Detroit, Michigan where we hope that all old boys will attend to bring in the next 25 years like only the old boys can.
