On behalf of the executive, I thank the 7 directors of the Board for dedicating their times to serve our community. We congratulate the Board for executing a seamless transition and electing its new leadership team.
We in the executive look forward to working with them during the course of our service to our community. We urge any member of our community who wants to contact any particular member of the Board to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we will put him/her in touch with the director he/she wants to have a conversation with.
On the same token, we thank Mr. Mangok and Mr. Ateny who have just exited the Board for the job well done. We wish them the best of luck with their next endeavors and hopefully they will use their freed up times to attend to their personal or family obligations they have put on hold during the course of their service to Bor Community in the past several years.
Akol Aguek Ngong, Chairman
For Bor County Development Association Executive
