Thank You For A Wonderful 3rd Year

Open Letter to the Community From Texas PCC

Date: April 12, 2011

Hi Everyone,

I am excited to write you this letter and inform you of the next phase of development of YOUR Persian Cultural Center in DFW.

First I want to thank each and every one of you who have supported our effort to provide community and cultural services for the last 3 years. Our mailing membership has grown to over 1300 people. We have been able to make a positive difference in the community by providing a place where people of all ages can come together to celebrate our similarities rather than argue over our differences. Our unfaltering mission of providing educational and cultural programs and events has been our guiding light for over 3 years now. We want to express our heartfelt and genuine gratitude to our volunteers who give their time, money and attention to help this community center, which they believe is greater and more valuable than the sum of its parts.

Have we faced issues or had shortcomings? Of course, but we have learned from our mistakes and missteps and will continue to learn together. We have strived to better our programs, approach to problem solving, and understanding of our differences. We hope to continue with these efforts with your help.

As we informed the community more than 3 years ago, the cultural center is managed by a board of directors and the first term of the board will end soon. The next board of directors will be elected by you, the members of the community. More information will come soon but I am excited to share the following today:

1. The bylaws of the cultural center are being amended and enhanced to allow the first ever election of the board of directors.
2. Candidate and voter registration details are slated to be published in a week or two.
3. The election will likely take place around the 3rd week of May of this year. The exact date will be published soon.
4. You are encouraged to participate in this election and chart the future course of TexasPCC.
5. The previous board of directors can be available for advice or as volunteers if they choose to, but for all intents and purposes, their term will end upon the election of the new board.
6. The next board will need your support more than ever. They will need financial support (monthly donations are bestů even a few dollars a month will help).
7. We have been informed that our lease will increase by nearly $950 (to $3200) in November. So we either need to be looking for a smaller space or have the community come up with more donation or new ideas for another venue, perhaps one closer to North Dallas/Plano area where the population concentration is higher. This year will prove to be a turning point for TexasPCC and we are excited to plan for it with your help.
Most of us claim to be passionate about Iran and Persian culture and here is your opportunity to participate and positively affect the community.

Stay tuned for more information.

Best wishes
