Dear ICCOBITES:
On behalf of the executive team we pray and wish you the protection of God almighty during this troubling time.
We thank our members for not inundating our WhatsApp platform with COVID-19 posts as well as forwarded information that may or may not be substantiated. This is a rapidly evolving landscape as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses. We strongly encourage everyone to visit the following websites: Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and your respective state and local departments of health for latest updates on the pandemic.
We echo the guidelines for maintaining social distancing and other safety precautions that have been provided by the WHO and CDC diligent hand washing, maintaining six-feet of distance from others, avoiding any gatherings of greater than 10 people, and to the extent possible staying put in our homes. The health of every one of our members is of utmost importance to us.
As ICCOBITES our hearts are with all people around the world who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreaks. This pandemic has affected everyone’s life. As we enter a new day and week of unknowns, we want you to know that we are praying for you, and we ask our members to please pray for each other for God’s protection and mercy.
Our Vice President, Dr. Presley Omoruyi has been working with Mr. Osasuyi Idubor, Mr. Fidel Castro Cole, and other Atlanta delegations on logistics relating to our convention. ICCOBA Convention is still scheduled for July 10-12, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia. However, if the needs arise members will be notified of any change.
Thank you for your understanding.

President Message

On behalf of the executive team, and the full membership of this association I want to thank everyone for their active engagement and participation in the association. It is exactly six months since the new executive under my stewardship was given the privilege to assume the leadership of this association for the next two years. From that very moment, we defined our objective for the association moving forward.
* Growing our membership, and improving on communication amongst members
* Putting our finances in order, and finding alternative methods of fundraising
* Reviewing our convention successes, failures and adhering to line item reporting as part of our post-convention audit.
We have developed strategies to achieve these objectives.
For Growing our membership, and improving communication amongst members, we created a WhatsApp platform to use in disseminating information in a timely fashion and getting responses from our members. We currently have 141 members in the WhatsApp platform. Our aim is to encourage all WhatsApp members to become ICCOBA NA members. We are in communication with the principal of our alma mater to receive and create a data base of all ICCOBIITES in North America. In addition, I regularly send direct mailings to members about the current state of the association and the feedback we have received has been very encouraging.
For Putting our finances in order and finding alternative methods of fundraising, upon assuming leadership of the association, we took stock of the association's finances and the book balance for the association was nothing to write home about. On my initiative coupled with the support of my excellent executive team, a board of Trustee program was created as an alternative method of fundraising. As of December 31st, 2019, the program raised $11,740.00 for the association. At the last convention in Boston, the house passed the measure for members to pay monthly dues in the amount of twenty dollars. We have and continue to encourage all members to pay their monthly dues of $20.00 or annual dues of $240.00.
For Reviewing our convention successes, failures and adhering to line item reporting as part of our post-convention audit, we have concluded a comparative analysis of past conventions to determine cost reduction strategies and other methods of improvements. We are hoping that the next convention will set the benchmark for subsequent conventions. Cost cutting and fundraising must be part and parcel of the overall convention strategies if we are going to be able to support our alma mater without constantly resulting to allotments.
So, with a laser like focus on the next convention as a benchmark for subsequent conventions, I would like to inform you that our venue for the 2020 ICCOBA Convention is Holiday Inn Express & Suites West, 3833 Princeton Lakes Court, SW Atlanta, GA 30331. Please mark your calendar the dates are July 10-12th, 2020.
Finally let me use this opportunity to once again solicit you support and cooperation by calling on all old boys to assist the executive by making your contribution to improve our association's finances. Join us in our effort towards making ICCOBA finances represent our status as great ICCOBITES. Looking forward to seeing all of you at the convention.
Thank you for your support.
