The annual legislative luncheons in 2008 - 2009 and fundraising where the best members of our community were honored. It is important to represent our community before the City and State legislature.

The COJECO would have an opportunity to really support member-organizations' activities and publish an information bulletin or a monthly newsletter about the COJECO's and members' activities.

Ways to make it better...

The COJECO should better coordinate its member-organizations' activities, provide internal and external information and improve public relations with the City administration, elected officials and other émigré organizations.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I believe it is fundraising, coordination of member-organizations' activities, providing internal and external information (using media) and improvement of public relations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I suggest to gather representatives member-organizations together with the Board of Directors more often in order to give them an opportunity to exchange with their experience and discuss the community's problems.

I was elected Vice President of Manhattan and Bronx branch of American Association of Veterans of WWII from FSU. The most important task was to make a list of veterans for a medal "65 Years of Great Victory." I couldn't do it all by myself, and all local organizations were obviously neglect. But COJECO answered immediately, and next day I had a meeting with a coordinator Rimma Khalamov. She found volunteers who were calling to veterans; made a deal with "Forum" newspaper to publish my ad; invited me to use COJECO conference room to meet with veterans; made copies and typed all materials; wrote a following letter to Washington and mailed a package to Washington. Also she helped me to send letters to different organizations of Manhattan to help old veterans. In behalf of Manhattan veterans I'd like to thank COJECO for a big benevolent timely help.

I couldn't find a decent job, was in depression didn't hav money...When I came to COJECO LEadership Group I enjoyed all sessions as well as meetings with interesting people - the members of the Group. The result was unexpected: co-leader I've met in a Group invited me to interview at her company. So I've got an offer, and now I work at this company about 4 years - and I'm happy. Thank you COJECO for help and support. COJECO really has a right to be calld Great Non-for-profit organization. (entered by a GreatNonprofits staff member from a paper review form)
