Dear Adoptee Community,
Three years goes by pretty fast! My term as SG is almost over, but I feel good about how much we have accomplished over the past three years, and also with the direction that we're heading in. We have a strong membership, an active board, a solid staff, and more developments in the pipeline ready to be launched early next year! Thank you once more to everyone for your support during my term. It was truly an honor to serve as your SG.
I’d also like to announce that a new secretary general has been selected after a thorough screening process by the staff and board of directors. The new secretary general for the next two years will be Anne Katrine Salling. Her years of experience working for and within the adoptee community here in Korea will serve her well during her coming term. Please join me in welcoming AK to G.O.A.'L and offer her support as she stewards G.O.A.'L as the next SG.
Thank you again and I hope you will all have a happy holiday season. And if you’re in Korea, I hope you can come to the Christmas Party on Dec. 10! We’ll have great food, live music, a raffle, an auction, a limbo contest and lots of fun!
