  • Please read my notes here in subsequent slides as well =) Thanks, Nguyen Hoang Trung
  • Vision statement, as stated in the official proposal submitted to SMUIcon and OSL in Jan 2009.
  • Missions, as stated in the official proposal submitted to SMUIcon and OSL in Jan 2009.
  • Although appearing to be a cultural club on campus, the main intention of the very first Chao Vietnam Committee is to strengthen the bonds amongst the Vietnamese community, through various internal events. This is because: (1) we understand the concerns of previous batches of Vietnamese students about the lack of seniors’ supports and hence the lack of sense of belonging; and (2) the pre-requisite of an active and growing club is the strong and bond relationship between its member. However, as Chao Vietnam grows stronger and stronger within the community, we can achieve more challenging goals which goes beyond the borders of SMU
  • Highlighted activities were ones that Chao Vietnam club has done in the first year of its inception. Focus was on Cultural Festivals and Internal acti vities
  • In October 2009, in view of granting more strategic influence and responsibilities to international students, SMU Student Association (SMUSA) decided to place SMUIcon right under it, as opposed to under Art and Cultural Fraternity (ACF) earlier. The President of SMUIcon will also become the International Student Secretary who sits in the Executive Committee of SMUSA. This restructuring indicates serious steps of SMUSA (and OSL) in increasing the visibility and importance of international students and cultural diversity on campus.
  • The graph shows the number of Vietnamese students enrolled into SMU over the years. According to reliable information from Office of Undergraduate Admissions (OUA), there have been 146 Vietnamese students accepted to enroll into undergraduate programmes @ SMU. We are unable to obtain this information for post graduate programmes. At the moment of creating these slides, there are 116 Vietnamese undergraduate. One thing to note is that as a “sub club” under CCA club SMUIcon, the leader position is Director as opposed to President. In official documents and other media of communication, the Exco of the sub club is “Sub club Committee”. The Director of the sub club will also become the Event Director who sits in Board of Exco of SMUIcon
  • Please follow the link (provided separately) to watch the video clip of Chao Vietnam’s past activities and events, made by Trieu Thanh, Chao Vietnam Marketing Head, 2009
  • The timeline is to be STRICTLY followed. Late nominations and essay submissions will not be accepted.
  • ELECTION PANEL: Nguyen Hoang Trung Nguyen Tri Dung Nguyen Thi Trieu Thanh Nguyen Trong Khoa Phan Cam Van OSL representative
  • Please take note that commitment of one full term (1 year) is required (you may still do part-time work or internship while remaining at the appointed position, but going on exchange during the term is not encouraged) These positions are suggested by the 1 st Exco and subject to final decisions of the new exco of Chao Vietnam as well as those of SMUIcon Exco “ Deputy Director, External” is the Event Head who is responsible for events that build up the image of Chao Vietnam externally. “ Deputy Director, Internal” is the Event Head who is responsible for internal events that strengthen the bond of the members within the club Secretary, apart from taking care of administrative and logistic issues, can also serve as auditor/controller (while Finance IC serves as the treasurer), and welfare issues of Exco and activities of Chao Vietnam
  • You may request this session be conducted again in the Debate session. However, the final decision is at the discretion of the 1 st Exco.
  • The very first (and Dazzling and Gorgeous =D) committee of Chao Vietnam – the Vietnamese student club @ SMU
