昆市市長亞裔顧問委員會五月份報告

MAAAC Update, May 2016 - (MAAAC for Mayor's Asian American Advisory Committee)

1. MAAAC - leadership & partnership: 
The Mayor's Asian American Advisory Committee was formed in early 2008. The vision is to help create a unified community environment. The mission is to provide a bridge between the City and the Asian American residents. At first, the Committee struggled to define the advisory role. Early on, we know clearly that it is imperative to be well informed before we can provide sound advice. Since 2009, the Committee decided to focus on the Eye on Quincy TV Show production on the local community access channel, QATV. The content of the Show is all about Quincy. The language used is Cantonese/ Mandarin and occasionally English. We try to learn about the happenings in Quincy and to help spread the necessary information. 

Our ultimate goal is to reach out and to engage all Chinese residents in the City, to nurture leadership and to cultivate partnership. As philosophical as it may seem, it is hard to imagine that it will ever touch ground. Over the past 7 years, however, for a minimum of 20 shows per year, it is not exaggerating to say that we have ENGAGED over 1,500 community members so far! 
i.e. 20 shows x 7 years x minimum 10 crew members/ viewers per show. 

To carry on the efforts, we urge everyone not to second guess what YOU can do. Come join us to rejuvenate our energy and to continue becoming important fabric of the City by active participation.
