CAMEROON AMERICAN COMMUNITY OF HOUSTON Welcomes you.
The vision of CAMCOH is to be an umbrella organization that will strive to bring all Cameroonians and well wishers to collaborate in a non-profit and service organization.
Our vision as spelled out in the constitution is:
to be an umbrella organization that will strife to bring all Cameroonians and well wishers to collaborate in a non-profit and service organization.
I write to inform all of you that in a historic decision on April 10, 2010, The Cameroonian American Community of Houston (CAMCOH) was formed at a general meeting held at the Hilton Hotel. This marked an important step forward in the consultations with Dr. Pauline Kwang initiated late 2009. We stand in a long tradition established by other leaders in our community who wanted to form a common forum for all of us. By deciding to adopt a draft constitution and electing leaders, you demonstrated that we are ready for a new day in our relationship to one another, the greater Houston and surrounding counties, our adopted country, mother land Cameroon, and Africa.
Our vision as spelled out in the constitution is: "to be an umbrella organization that will strife to bring all Cameroonians and well wishers to collaborate in a non-profit and service organization."
Our objective is "to function as a non-profit, non-ethnic, non-religious, non-political organization that will provide support, advice, fellowship, and sustain the unity of the Cameroonian Community in the Greater Houston and the contiguous counties. The Organization shall also promote Cameroon culture in the region, serve as a networking organization; a resource for information for all people interested in Cameroon or engaging in business venture in Cameroon. The larger raison d’etre is to serve as an unifying organization for interested Cameroonian cultural and social , alma mater, and professional groups."
We have laid forward before all Cameroonians and their well wishers, a simple vision of building and serving the community in a way that would make us proud. Yet, it is a vision that is far reaching in scope because we will work for a vibrant, active and productive community. This is a monumental task because it calls on us to serve our community and the greater Houston area and the surrounding counties while at the same time inviting us to focus on Cameroon in order to recapture and redefine who we are and the kind of legacy we want to leave for our children. The leadership team you have chosen to serve is confident that we will accomplish these goals by adopting transformative agendas. Our community will be led through the General Assembly which includes all registered members, an advisory council made up of the elected leaders of our cultural, professional, and alumni groups in our region. We have a strong Board of Governors that will look after the activities of our community and the daily business of the community will be shouldered with your collaboration and input by the executive committee.
