We thank you to event committee, all volunteers, bazaar vendors and especially to all respected guests from all community members in Ottawa area. From Indonesian Embassy Ottawa staff lead by Ambassador Ibu Diene, Indonesian and Canadian loving residence from Gatineau, Ottawa, Kanata, Orleans and more.  We appreciate all help, support and donation to make this event a success. The event shows that we can be together with harmony, we can be better and refocus with wisdom. Let’s build our bright future together for our youth generation to come. 

At this time, I would like to report ICC AGM 2014 result related to financial and new ICC Board of Director election. Not only box money donation, merchandise for Silent Auction and Door Price, Tor Tor dance box donation led by family of Situmorang, individual cash donation, we also received food donation line up  from the our own ICC family kitchen to display one of 30 Indonesian culinary icon “Nasi Tumpeng with all in condiments and decorations”, food donation from Indonesian Embassy and Dharma Wanita, food donation from PPLN in the amount of $600 to showcase another culinary icon “Rawon completes”, cakes donation to celebrate ICC 9th anniversary and all kind of fruit, drink deserts to complete our feast Indonesian culinary journey experience for the event. It was an impressive cooperation, loving support and coordinating to all of us Indonesian Canadian community member.

The monetary value for the above donation and volunteer time are priceless. I sincerely thanks to all and congratulate to all involved. Thank you to Ibu Edith as the event treasurer for compiling, verifying and reporting that the current standing cash flow from ICC AGM 2014 is net positive of $403.85 which bring current ICC cash asset to $4690.85 from 2013 cash asset reported during AGM 2014 of $4287.

One small fact to know about ICC finance from zero in 2005, the ICC first Administration was able to bring to $1718 in 2008/2009 then the second Administration raised more to $3864 in 2011 and here we are in 2013/2014 the ICC cash asset is at $4690. It is my humble opinion that all walk of life of ICC community are willing and generous. I also congratulate all previous ICC Board Directors and Executives from 2005 to 2013 for the sacrifice and work well done so far.  

Having said that let’s go further looking forward into future and congratulation to new elected ICC Board Directors 2014  (with one yet to be confirmed for availability – subject to change):

  1. Soesi Atantri
  2. Pande Hartana
  3. Gerald Robert
  4. Roy Hutagaol
  5. Ria Arthur
  6. Yvon Valade
  7. Marsusi Nurhadiyati
  8. Atiq Rehman (TBC)
  9. Dino Fikri
  10. Budi Mulyono
  11. Ririn Astari
  12. Robby Tulus
  13. Diah Anggraini
  14. Dimas Firmantoro
  15. Titin Suprihatin

According to current ICC by laws the board will consist of min 5 to max 15 members so we have sufficient candidates. Unfortunately we didn’t have a chance during AGM for new elected board to get together to elect new President. Therefore AGM 2014 ICC Election committee lead by pak Pande and pak Budi will arrange for following up with 2014 elected ICC Board Directors to appoint new ICC Executives. Let’s support the new ICC boards and executives into the future for all of us.

Also the new ICC administration team will have exciting time to refresh and refocus ICC direction as we will need to resubmit new ICC by laws and other document to comply with new “Not For Profit Act” from Canada Government by October 2014.

Nothing perfect come from human plan and creation, we made mistake, we did err, we said wrong, for those and any shortcoming from the AGM 2014 program or previous events we sincerely ask for apology.

I hope we can all be successful and healthy to build strong and more caring community.

Thank you

Annual General Meeting 2014 – Youth and Wisdom

Time goes by and the Indonesian Canadian Congress (ICC) is 9 years old since it was established in 2005. This year the ICC will hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) on March 9, 2014, starting at 12 pm at the Jim Durrell Recreation Center in Ottawa. In line with our vision to make a better future for our younger generations our AGM theme is “A Better Community Empowerment through Youth and Wisdom”. We have prepared the slew of programs below.

One of big event during this year AGM is election of new executives and board members. We are hoping for more of new faces with refresh and new idea. While at the same time lead and direct with wisdom and 9 years’ strong experience in community organization. We had up and down during our journey but our objective is clear to better empower the Indonesian Community in Ottawa with continuing active and positive of regeneration. The Indonesian Embassy and Indonesian Election committee will also present to socialize upcoming big Indonesian election and bring the latest information from Indonesia.

Thousands of islands and thousands of ethnicity build “The Jewel of Equator” called Indonesia. They also bring famous and diverse Indonesian culinary that always please the food critics. During this occasion we will have two top Indonesian culinary icon dishes “Rawon” the famous black soup and “Nasi Tumpeng”.

The RAWON is one of the most popular dish in East Java with black nuts as the main spices. It is mixed with the beef to make great soup to eat with rice and several condiments including “sambal oelek”, the well-known of Indonesia’s hot sauce.

The “CORNUCOPIA RICE” or “NASI TUMPENG” is another well-known dish, especially serve during anniversary or event celebration. The rice is shaped like a mountain and is surrounded by assorted Indonesian dishes into a complex and artistically decorated displays. Each ingredient past of “Nasi Tumpeng” has philosophical meanings: yellow rice that spice-up with turmeric, lemon grass and coconut milk is a symbol of a glory. The chicken dish is a symbol of hard work without being greedy. The egg dish has a meaning of completeness in the circle of life while dried anchovy dish is meant for togetherness. These Two main dishes will mark the celebration of the 9th AGM of ICC. Off course there will be many other dishes from many regions in Indonesia which will be presented in a mini bazaar.

In addition there will be an exhibition of Indonesian’s handicrafts as sculptures, masks, accessories, and Batik’s Ware. Just a taste of batik during this event ICC will present few of those in BATIK FASHION SHOW. Other traditional performances including traditional dance and a performance with musical instrument “ANGKLUNG” from West Java. The Angklung is a musical instrument made from of bamboo which was also designated by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on November 18, 2010. The Angklung will be performed by Indonesian Canadian Angklung Society (ICAS) group.
We hope series of program of this half day family friendly event will bring joy and fun while helping ICC grows and able to be self-independent. Proceed from mini bazaar and silent auction as well as voluntary donation will be used to fund future ICC activities. And it is “From US to US for Better Community Empowerment through Youth and Wisdom”.
