By Jackson C. Clay, Jr.
The Elite June Association (EJA) has elected and inducted into office its new leadership to steer the affairs of the group for the next one year.
This followed the expiration of tenure of the previous leadership headed by the group’s former President, Baccus Roberts and team who administered the affairs of the group for the last one year.
The election which took place on the 27th of January 2019 was done on a white ballot basis due to only single candidate applying for the various positions within the group that were up for grab.
Upon the election, a well-planned induction ceremony was held over the weekend within the Du-Port Road community, Paynesville city outside Monrovia.
Speaking during the induction ceremony which brought together several members of the group and other members from various groups, newly elected President Henry B. Carter said his leadership would ensure that the group is more united more than ever before.
Carter said that under his leadership as President of EJA for the next one year, the issue of capacity building for members of the group would be high on his agenda and vowed to address cardinal issues affecting the group.
“We know we have issues and all of those issues that were not considered our leadership is going to take action to addressing them. We are also going to look at capacity building for member because we know that we have a membership of over 200 and people within the group that need the help and support of others members who are in the position to help, so capacity building as I said is going to be something that we will tackle,” Carter stressed.
EJA new President asserted that hiss leadership would continue the aspect of giving back to society which was started under the previous leadership and promised to duly register the June Care Foundation (JCF), an arm of the group he said is going to take full responsibility of giving back to society.
“Charity, we are going to continue giving back to society and in doing so we have already decided to make the June Care Foundation (JCF) and arm of EJA and this foundation like EJA is going to be duly registered and is going to working under the laws of the Republic of Liberia,” President Carter noted.
At the same time, President Carter has appointed immediate past President of EJA, Baccus Roberts to head the JCF.
Meanwhile, those elected are Henry B. Carter, Geraldine Cooper and Vivian Wreh, as President, Vice President and General Secretary respectively. Others include Delana Richards and Nathanlyn Patray as Financial Secretary and Treasure respectively.
