Canadian Chinese Table Tennis Federation
18th Annual General Meeting
The 18th Annual General Meeting of Canadian Chinese Table Tennis Association (hereinafter referred to as “CCTTF”)
held on May 27, 2019 at a seafood restaurant in Richmond. The meeting focused on reporting to members on the
major activities and financial situation of the past year and announced the work plan for the following year.
Mr. Tchao, President of CCTTF, reported on major events over the past year and financial information, budget and
work plan for the coming year as below:
Last year, despite the best efforts of our directors, Chinese teenagers couldn’t come because of visas and other reasons. The Cities Friendship event in 2018 had to be cancelled.
However, one of our Directors, Ms. Becky Xu, along with several die heart CCTTF members, they took in their own initiative to organize a weekly in-house tournament on every Wednesday afternoon. The effort was continuous without interruption and more and more players are joining them to create a very fun-filled afternoon. This effort of self-imitativeness is being recognized by all related parties including Oval senior management. As we speak, CCTTF BOD is currently discussing with Oval to consider extending a more generous and formal offer to support this effort of our Becky Xu and her group of volunteers.
We are at the final stage of planning for an expanded version of our 2019 Metro Vancouver & Richmond Cities Friendship Open & Invitational Table Tennis Tournament in October. Intended invitees will include those from Qingdao & Xiamen in China, Wakayama in Japan, Edmonton & Quebec in Canada. In order to make this a more competitive environment, we have decided to invite all mature players from these cities to participate. All details, please stay tune…
In order that we could make a more efficient way to communicate with our members, we have retained a professional website designer to upgrade our website whereby more new features which include online payment have been rowing out. In around November of 2018, through the effort of Mr. Harry Ji, he was kind enough to donate in a major way by providing us with a substantial subsidy to maintain, upgrade and manage our website with on line payment facilities.
One of our Directors, Mr. Freddy Yang has decided to return to China for good. We wished him all the best of luck in his endeavor. Because of his departure, we are pleased to announce the appointment of two new and capable directors to our group through the Board’s recommendation and approval. They are Mr. Shibin Gu and Ms. Cinday Wang.
In year 2018 till now, I am pleased to inform everyone that we have seen continuous growth of our membership. We have more than 350 voting and non-voting members. CCTTF is a non-profit making organization officiated in BC as of September 2000. It aims to promote the sport of table tennis and to assist Table Tennis Canada in building future top international champions from Canada; to promote this sport as one of the best instruments for overall health benefits; and to enhance friendship through linkage by table tennis with the rest of the world. The conference was successfully concluded after a sumptuous dinner sponsored by the Hon. Vice President Tom Mah.
