The report says the Boston Pan-African Forum is pleased to announce the hiring of Kelley Chunn as Executive Director/Consultant. The report says the Boston Pan-African Forum is a membership organization dedicated to fostering strength and progress throughout the African Diaspora; the Forum's programs and activities seek to educate, activate, and mobilize African-Americans, the African Diaspora, and friends of Africa regarding their interests in international and domestic affairs affecting Africa; Kelley Chunn is a former member of Boston TransAfrica and is familiar with the efforts of the current organization; her accomplishments include having worked as an Assistant Professor of Public Relations at Northeastern University, served as a communications specialist for the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency, and worked as a producer at WHDH-TV and WCVB-TV in Boston; Kelley also traveled as part of Governor William Weld's trade mission to South Africa. She currently is the principal of Kelley Chunn & Associates, a state-certified consultancy specializing in multicultural public relations and marketing; she is a graduate of New York University and Simmons College. Kelley's community and professional affiliations include The National and Boston Associations of Black Journalists, The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Development Fund for a Free South Africa, the Museum of Afro-American History, the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Roxbury Chamber of Commerce, and the Hispanic-American Chamber of Commerce; she also worked as a Media Consultant for the Nigerian Television Authority in Lagos and helped raise $75,000 for Nelson Mandela's visit to Boston in 1990. The report says now that we have Kelley on board, we are well on our way toward targeting the various sectors-including schools, civic organizations, the media, government and political leaders, business and investment communities-that we want to incorporate into our constituency-building efforts; a new year is here, and we must take this opportunity to galvanize and organize, and we need your help; we ask each of you to participate to help the organization achieve its objectives and goals. The report says with the help and guidance of our new Executive Director, we will more clearly define our goals for 1999 and our participation in the East Coast Summit as part of the National Summit on Africa's Eastern & mid-Atlantic meeting scheduled to be held on July 25, 1999, in Baltimore, MD; we extend an invitation for everyone, all friends of Africa, to join us, to participate in committees (Programming, Policy, Media/Marketing), and put forth your ideas on how we can serve our communities, increase our membership, and fulfill our mission; we look forward to seeing you at our meetings, which take place the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30PM at the Boston University African-American Seminar Room.
