It is with much disappointment that I have to announce the resignation of Kofi Amegashie as ALI SA’s Executive Director due to his relocation to the UK with his family.
ALI SA has seen the introduction of a robust and active social media, a rejuvenated website, as well as an introduction of our monthly dialogues. All of this, is attributed to Kofi’s vision and contribution which has sparked an improved fellow engagement, and a renewed focus on existing projects.
Kofi’s tasks concentrated on three major strategic objectives in 2016:
- To re-engage the Fellowship — which he has done successfully.
- To tell the ALI SA story — recently we have had a lot more fellows tell us how their original projects (along with other initiatives they are engaged in) are doing. A group of fellows is currently working on a significant collaborative project. And all of these achievements and activities are as a direct result of Kofi’s vision.
- The third objective was to fix the funding — at the time of his departure, Kofi had started on registering a new entity for ALI SA which is to enable us to raise funds and ensure funders and sponsors benefit from their relationship with ALI SA.
Our plan is to recruit a new Executive Director to replace Kofi once we have raised the necessary funding. We are fortunate to have the support of Ann Lamont from class II (Kilimanjaro) who has agreed to work with Sedi to raise the funding and deliver on the key strategic priorities of the ALI SA board for 2017.
We want to wish Kofi and his family success in their future endeavours in their new home country. Thankfully he is not lost to us, as he remains a fellow of the 10th class and will continue to be part of the family, and we will continue to tap into his knowledge and network in the coming future.
Let Integrity Lead.
