My engagement with GFCBW, strictly speaking, has been 26 years, first by the appointment by Founding Chairwoman Jui Chin Ko Tu to establish the Tainan County Industrial and Commercial Branch, the branch was then founded one year later, in 1997. In 2012, I was once again trusted by Chairwoman Ko Tu and designated to set up the Tainan Branch of GFCBW. I thus have taken the office of the founding Chairwoman for the two branches of the federation. During this period, I successively served as the sixth vice Chairwoman of the federation, the international executive director, and an international advisory committee member (several terms); thus, I embrace a deep affection for the federation that could never leave.
In addition to the federation, I have been involved in many associations of different natures, including 30 years of organizational experience in the public welfare group. I have thought of retiring, but every time I saw the spirit of the founding Chairwoman of Ko Tu, who dedicated herself to everything in the federation, I was deeply moved. This year, I participated in the election of the chairman of the board of supervisors of the federation for the first time, and I was fortunate to be elected, hoping to do more specific work and services for the federation in the next two years.
In the 12th session, GFCBW innovated a new pattern, changing the method of selection from that in the past, electing the first vice Chairwoman and supervisor of the 12th session by the delegates for the first time. Although I have served as vice Chairwoman in the past, I feel that the responsibility is even more now that I have been elected as the chairman of the board of supervisors this time. The chairman’s duty and work cover the supervision and inspection mechanism of the promotion of the federation tasks and the supervision and verification mechanisms of financial revenue and expenditure. The board of supervisors is expected to hold regular meetings of the supervisors, and to be responsible for the voting ballots, voting and vote-counting supervision and verification tasks during the election, so that the board of supervisors can carry out its appointed duties and do its job with openness, fairness and justice, so as to gain the trust of all GFCBW members.
I hope that during my tenure as the chairman of the 12th Session of Supervisory Board, I can improve in the implementation of this task, and work together with the Chairwoman Chu Wei and the cadre team of the federation to complete the goals and tasks set, so as to live up to the expectations of the sisters of GFCBW.
