Jack Cha will immediately step down as he has served C3 as an IT officer, C3 Leadership Conference Direct rand Chair. "Serving our Korean Canadian community through C3 has been an honour and a privilege. Even as the C3 chair in the last two years, I always considered myself as just one of the many community volunteers involved in C3. I knew that each of us made a difference, one small steps each time but taken together as a group towards a common goal. I was truly lucky to make lifelong friends through C3 and we call ourselves extended C3 family members, which includes Tina, the new chair for C3."
Added Cha, "Tina is an exceptional community leader who has been serving our community for many number of years. Tina is fun to be around and she has kept me and others motivated to continue volunteering at C3 from 2010. She is now surrounded by capable and passionate directors, officers and special committee members as I have been in the past. I am grateful for Tina in taking the chair role and I look forward to the continued contribution of C3 to our community."
