QMAAAC Update – Feb 2017/ Quincy Mayor's Asian American Advisory Committee
(To request to be removed from the email list, please write a note back.) 
1. Changes in the QMAAAC:
Entering the New Year, the Committee will adopt some new policies. A short survey conducted resulted in an agreement to continue producing the Eye on Quincy TV Show on QATV. The Show not only provides updated information on Quincy happenings, it also gives us, producers a chance to get closer to the community pluse. We certainly played a role in bridging gaps between Asians and non-Asians through the TV Shows, the monthly luncheon with some community activists, the annual Cleaner Greener Quincy event, many lunar new year activities and the August Moon Festival of the QARI's ... etc. We are working on expanding volunteer opportunities to reach out to the wider scope of community groups. We are looking for intern(s). Any person interested, please contact Betty Yau at Bilingual is preferred but not necessary. Being social media savvy is always helpful.
