World Eng Family Benevolent Association in Los Angeles

Dear Eng Family Members:

This is a Special Notice regarding very important and festive Association events that are coming up in December this year. We ask that you join us for the following events:

  1. This year, 2017, is the 25th anniversary for our current Association building in Los Angeles Chinatown built in 1992, and the 40th anniversary of the founding of our Association in Los Angeles in 1977. To celebrate these milestones, on Sunday, December 17, 2017 we will have a noontime ceremony at the Association building followed by a banquet in the evening at 6pm at the Golden Dragon Restaurant in Los Angeles Chinatown. At the banquet, we will also be honoring people who were instrumental to the building of our Association meeting hall including National Eng Family Benevolent Association Senior Advisor, Thomas Ng, and our own Past-President and Advisor, Pang Ng, as well as a founding member, May Toy Poy (Ivy).

    Let us Engs come together, whether you are an active and inactive member, all of our Eng aunties, and your family and friends, to celebrate these Association anniversaries. We need your support to ensure our banquet is a great success! The banquet cost will be $20 per person, $15 for children from age 5 to 17, to help defray the banquet expense.

    Please let us know you will be coming by calling one of our presidents: Wayne (English only), Sam (Chinese only), or Amy (Chinese only), or send email to: engfamilyassn.la@gmail.com

  2. The Association’s annual Holiday lunch celebrating the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, hosted bythe NGG group, will be held on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at noontime. The NGG group will be serving traditional turkey and other fixings.

    After lunch, elections for the 2018 Association officers and committee chairs will be conducted. Please note that only current dues paying members are eligible to vote. If you have not yet paid your dues, please kindly pay your annual dues of $10 at the meeting if you have not already paid this year.

    Recommended nominees for the 2018 officers and committee chairs were discussed by the Board of Directors at the quarterly meeting held on October 15, 2017. The recommended nominees were announced at the monthly general meeting on November 5, 2017 and the floor was opened to any additional nominations. The final slate of nominees for the 2018 Association board of officers are listed below. Since only the President position has more than one nominee, the election for that position will be conducted by secret ballot. All other officer and committee chair positions will be voted on by majority voice/hand vote.

    Nominees for President:
    Amy Ng (current Vice President)
    Sam Guoseng Wu (current Vice President and Treasurer)

    Nominees for other officer and committee chair positions:

Chinese Secretary - Kin Wai Ng English Secretary – To Be Determined Treasurer – To Be Determined

Building Committee Chair – Wayne C. Ng
Women’s Group Chair – June Wu
Scholarship Committee Chairs – Darren Ng & Wayne C. Ng NGG (Next Generation Group) Chair – Darren Ng

We hope you have had a good year and hope to see you all at our future meetings and events in the new year.

Wayne C., President

Amy and Sam, Vice Presidents
