The newly-elected officers of the Bhutanese Community Association started meeting with significant constituencies early in their tenure. The purpose of these meetings was to introduce themselves, review the history of BCAA’s relationship with their organization, and to discuss how BCAA can work to further the purposes of both organizations.
The first of these meetings was held with Michael Byun and staff at Asian Services In Action (ASIA). Other scheduled meetings were with the International Institute of Akron (IIA), the Knight Foundation, the City of Akron, and the University of Akron. At the meeting with representatives from the University of Akron and the City of Akron Mayor’s Office, discussions began about the venue for the 2017 BCAA Annual Festival.

Selected BCAA activities are chronicled in this blog.
