|Greetings from the Chairman|
Kung Hei Fat Choi!
According to Asian folklore, the incoming Year of the Rabbit is a good time to slow down, reflect and strive for balance around work, money, and life.
It is not the year to make rash decisions - nor decisions for the short term: making more with less is not a long-term sustainable solution.
We hope everyone can find balance in managing the challenges and opportunities of the Year of the Rabbit, and if we - at DCC - can be helpful in any way, please don't hesitate to reach out with ideas that we could facilitate for the greater good of our community.
A big thanks to everyone in our community who has renewed their memberships. This enables us to continue to arrange our staple events. Please already now mark your calendars. More info to come closer to the event dates.
