Good Evening LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
It is my pleasure to welcome Premier Mr. Cheng, vice Premier of the executive government and all our honoured guests to the closing ceremoney of the 8th World Games in Kaohsiung.
On behalf of the ___Board, I would like to welcome you to ___Conference.
We also wish to thank the many interntional Olympic Committee and National Olympic Committe members who participated in helping bring their athletes to the Games. THE TAIPEI AND KAOHSIUNG CITY GOVERNMENT ARE TO BE CONGRATULATED FOR GIVING ALL OF US AN OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICPATE IN SUCH A FANTASTIC MULTI SPORT WORLD GAMES EVENT.
I would like to introduce you now to ____Board of Directors as you will be seeing a lot of us in the next 4 days and we hope that we will have a chance to meet and chat with all of you:
Mr.__, responsible for all ___communications.
Ms.__, responsible for our committees and task forces.
I would like to introduce Tina and Bill_ your conference co-chairs.
I’d like to invite all the First time conference attendees to stand up. We hope everyone here will make you feel welcome. We have implemented a few changes to help integrate newcomers –one of which is dinner seating arrangement.
Tonight we are seating by region because if you are a newcomer, the first people you’d want to meet are people in your region and if you are returning, most likely that’s where your friends are anyway.
On the other hand, tomorrow, we would like to have random but assigned seating so that you do get to meet different people, –this is to facilitate your networking but more importantly, to ensure integration of newcomers. By Friday night, we hope you have met enough people that we have left it as free seating.
The conference is online –updated daily with pictures, videos of presentations, copies of the presentations, as well as hand/outs if there are any for each session. So please tell your members at home to follow along.
We are also on Twitter @____2012. Our official Tweeter is Bill but if you have your own following, please tweet, use @____2012 Broadcast# If you have pictures, do stop by the communications room and give them to us –we collect the best for our daily newsletters and for posting on the website.
-------------------- WE HAVE ALL ENJOYED THE EVENTS AND THE TRUE SPORTMANSHIP WE WITNESSED BETWEEN THE ATHLETES. TOP SPORTS AND HIGH SPIRITS WITH FAIR PLAY WAS WITHOUT DOUBT THE ORDER OF THE DAY. I CANNOT THANK OUR ATHLETES ENOUGH FOR THEIR PARTICIPATION AND SPORTSMANSHIP. TO ALL OUR ADMINISTATORS AND COACHES THANK YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE. I WANT TO PAY TRIBUTE TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WHO WERE SO KIND TO ALL THE GUESTS AND WENT OVER AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY – YOU DID A MARVELLOUS JOB AND REPRESENTED YOUR CITY OF KAOHSIUNG WITH PRIDE.
