Maria Salomon Yumang
FAAWIS President 2016


“A leader is powerful to the degree he empowers others”

Early this year, I took my daughter and her BFF snow tubing. At some point, I told them to wait because I felt that the slope was treacherous. My daughter said, “You’re acting like a president again.” I was taken aback and thought that she meant I was too bossy. She then explained, “That’s what presidents do. They keep everybody safe.”

I do hope that I met your expectations of me as your FAAWIS president. My humble apologies for my inadequacies and deficiencies but please know that I tried to fulfill my duties and responsibilities to the best of my ability.

2016 was a wonderful year! I had the opportunity to serve and network with the Filipino-American community. I am eternally grateful to the Board Members, Officers, Committee Chairs and Members for all their hard work, leadership and support. But most of all, my sincerest gratitude to all of you. The generous support, involvement, participation and interaction of individuals like you make it possible for our organization to be viable, visible, vibrant, vital and helped make our community a great one!

Thank you again for your support!
