Among several members of the Albanian American Cultural Center are those that demonstrate their dedication through their hard work and participation. Their continued volunteer work with a “don’t stop – keep it moving” policy clearly shows their genuine intention for the betterment, growth, development and future of this organization. In other words, they truly “care” about OUR organization where the general welfare of the AACC is paramount.
I don’t regard them as mere volunteers – I regard them as great people, bold leaders with strong personalities and each with a great noble character. They lead with their unique values and relationships and it is well documented that leading through relationships is the basis of leadership. They get along with others and value others. They lead and inspire because of who they are and how they interact with others. Most importantly, they don’t depend on their position or the lack thereof to influence the actions of others.
They don’t focus on differences which is the major cause of division. They recognize only one thing, that regardless of where you may come from, where you were born, what your dialect is, where you reside, what faith you adhere to, etc., the sole relevance that binds us together is that very fact that we’re Albanian with one flag, one language, one community, the same origin, and we should never lose sight of this.
