Peseta returns as Chairman
Pesetā Dr. Desmond Mene Lee Hang is set to continue as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Leadership Samoa for yet another twelve months.
This was confirmed after the Leadership Samoa Annual General Meeting held last month.
In other positions, Taituuga Maryann Lameko-Vaai and Manusamoa Christine Saaga also carry on their roles as Treasurer and General Secretary respectively as the Executive members of the Leadership Samoa organization which runs the nine month Program for up and coming leaders in all areas of the community. The trio has been in these positions for the last three years.
According to the C.E.O. of Leadership Samoa, Seumanu Douglas Ngau Chun, this is great news for Leadership Samoa as it enters an important transition period as it works towards making the program sustainable.
“I would like to acknowledge our Executive and each member of the Board for their invaluable support of the Program,” Seumanu said.
“They all contribute their time, energy and interest on a voluntarily basis and it is a blessing to have such committed individuals who truly believe that ethical and well trained leaders lie at the heart of successful and sustainable development. As we work towards achieving sustainability of the Program it is always good to have stability in our Organization.”
During the Annual General Meeting, the Board acknowledged with appreciation Papali’i Malietau Malietoa for his services to the Board over the past six years and note that he was one of the founding trustees of the Leadership Samoa Trust and contributed greatly to the activities which it currently undertakes and the graduation of so many energetic and aspiring leaders who have proven their talents and abilities.
The new Board Member who has joined the Board after the annual general meeting is a proud alumni of Leadership Samoa, but also holds the position of C.E.O of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Labour, Pulotu Lyndon Chu Ling.
He is one of the great ambassadors of the Program and brings great insight to the Board given his own personal achievements and talents.
“It’s great to have someone of Pulotu’s calibre to join our Board. Pulotu is an Alumni of Leadership Samoa and he brings in wealth of experience and knowledge from the public sector to help boost the ongoing development of Leadership Samoa,” said Seumanu.
Leadership Samoa has already opened its call for applications and its due by the end of June.
“If you are interested in participating in a program which challenges you to extend your knowledge and confidence whilst at the same time contributing to the country’s development goals then please contact Leadership Samoa Secretariat.”
