USTCAF 2017 新年贺词

 

亲爱的会员们、校友们、朋友们:


金鸡报春,鸡年大吉!


我是中国科学技术大学校友基金会(USTC Alumni Foundation,简称USTCAF)理事会主席董群峰。


USTCAF 1995年创立于美国,是中国科学技术大学成立最早、历史最久的首个校友基金会。USTCAF致力于在全球范围帮助提升中国科学技术大学师生、校友的影响力,已经发展成为拥有多类多个专款专用、运作灵活方便的子基金,并得到校友广泛信赖、积极响应的慈善基金会。值此新春佳节来临之际,我代表USTCAF向您致以崇高的敬意和衷心的感谢!


刚刚过去的2016年间:


我们完成了40位2015年度入学新生的"爱心助学计划"(爱心奖学金 Goodwill Awards)认捐,这些受捐的困难同学将得到资助者连续四年的捐助直至毕业,加上前几届(2014、2013以及2012年度入校的)受捐学生,在资助中的学生数量总和为160人;

我们完成了2016入学优秀新生的奖励,包含:科大校友奖学金(Excellent New Student Award)及中学校友奖学金(Excellent New Student Award),获奖新生25人;


我们完成了2016年度教师系列的奖励,包括:Young Faculty Career Award “优秀青年教师奖”、 Teaching Excellence Award “杰出教学奖”及Young Faculty Achievement Award “青年科学家杰出成就奖”,获奖教师9人。


我们完成了2016年度的AF理事选举,新当选的张冬欣(0800)、王春鹏(0507)、庞华栋(95少/9500)、鲍若愚(9400)、周为民(0702)、周丰伯(0738)、董群峰(9311)、王艾伦(1120)、欧子豪(1100)、钱朔(992)与上届续任的李嘉(1100)、张西宁(0804)、李逊(856)共13位理事组成2017届USTCAF理事会。


2017年是中国科学技术大学建校59周年,也是USTCAF成立22周年。59年筚路蓝缕的征程,22载激情燃烧的岁月。我与多数校友一样,对科大抱有朴素淳厚的感情。24年前,我从安徽省庐江中学考入中国科学技术大学计算机系;16年前,在母校度过8年青葱岁月的我,乘坐“911”恐怖袭击之后从上海飞往美国的第一架航班留学美国,随后加入USTCAF志愿服务,同期服务的理事会成员中就包括后来回国参与创立中国科学技术大学新创基金会(USTCIF)的USTCIF创始秘书长刘志峰;10年前,刚刚博士毕业于威斯康辛大学麦迪逊分校计算机系、一心回报母校有所作为的我,收获了一份沉甸甸的信任,校领导告知我在科大校史上首次作为新科博士被直接聘任为正教授、博导,回校第一天即直接奔赴高考招生战场第一线;5年前,我在科大领导的实验室在计算机科学世界顶级学术会议NSDI上正式发表了大中华地区高校历史上首篇研究论文,夙愿终偿,随后加入产业界担任华为计算体系结构首席科学家;2年前,积累了产业界视野经验的我离职创办了自己的科技企业,带领一支以科大校友为主力的初创团队,成功研发超越国际产业巨头的创新芯片技术;现在,时隔10年之后,我很荣幸地再次重返USTCAF大家庭,作为2017届理事会当选主席志愿服务母校和广大校友,重任在肩,如履薄冰。


我是普通工人家庭的孩子,入学USTC 24载、结缘USTCAF 16年的学习工作生活让我清楚坚定地认识到,USTCAF不属于任何小圈子,不听命任何大领导;USTCAF是我们大家的,是广大校友自己的,是独立于任何官方机构的。民间性、独立性、透明性是USTCAF的根本宗旨,是USTCAF不同于其他校友基金会的鲜明特色,也是2017届USTCAF理事会坚定奉行的行动准则。2017年,USTCAF将继续在透明性方面持续追求新高度,启动全新IT系统的建设,更好地实现USTCAF每一笔收支的原始凭证公开上网可查。这是USTCAF未来漫漫征途中的一小步,也是中国科学技术大学整个校友基金体系的开创性一大步。


2017年,USTCAF还将一如既往地继续推进回馈母校的各类项目,现有下列基金期待捐助:

  • GFund——USTCAF主力基金,主要用于教师系列奖项、部分学生奖项以及其他奖项。
  • 爱心奖学金系列,新一届(2016级)学生的爱心一对一认捐活动将于2017年5月份启动。
  • 中学校友系列子基金,如果您希望支持您所在中学的USTC学弟学妹,请踊跃捐赠!
  • 以校友个人或班级名义设立的子基金,将按照您的意愿进行设立,欢迎校友们捐赠!
  • 四牌楼子基金(用于支持科大学生综合素质的活动与实践),欢迎积极参与!

感谢你们!http://www.ustcaf.org/zh/donations/donate-now

Revision of the USTC AF Bylaws

Dear Members of the USTC AF,

We are writing you this letter to inform you of the project we are undertaking to significantly revise the bylaws of the USTC AF.

In this letter we will present you the historical background, the deficiencies of the bylaws, the problems we have encountered in the past, and the collective recommendation from the current board of directors on what the changes should be. We also would describe the procedural steps we desire to undertake to effect this revision, as well as ways you can get involved in the project and have your voice heard.

BACKGROUND

The USTC AF was founded in 1995 and incorporated in the State of Delaware in the same year. One of the founding members, Mr. ZHANG, Shangyou, wrote the original bylaws. To the best of our knowledge we did not utilize paid professional help. The bylaws had since gone though a number of revisions over the years, but had largely retained the same format. The current bylaws are available on our web site[1].

While this set of bylaws have supported our organization for more than 20 years. There are a number of obstacles that have been inhibiting factors in promoting our members participation, smooth operation, and overall rate of growth. Major deficiencies include:

1.     Lack of definition of membership

2.     Clarity on the executive structure, and delegation of authorities

3.     Clarity on board elections, as well as decision making process

The rest of this letter will explain these issues in more detail, plus a number of other smaller issues, and makes recommendation on a major revision effort for the bylaws.

PROPOSED PROCEDURES

The USTC AF board of directors (The “Board”) proposes a simple set of steps below for this project.

1.     Discussion of this issue within the current Board, this has taken place.

2.     Drafting of a document to the membership body (this letter).

3.     Review this letter by all board members, revise with board consensus.

4.     Send out this letter to the membership body, collect feedback and make adjustments.

5.     In parallel to step 3 and 4 above, engage a professional law firm to help drafting the new bylaws according to our desires laid out in this letter.

In terms of the actual bylaws text, our initial consultation with legal professionals had indicated that it is a much preferred approach to start with a clean template of typical non-profit organization, and then customize it to our needs.

In the following sections, we will discuss key aspects of our organization, how they are defined in our current bylaws, and the proposed changes.

MEMBERSHIP STRUCTURE

The USTC AF is a membership-based organization; the power of the organization ultimately rests with the membership body. The current bylaws defines a procedure whereby anybody making a donation automatically becomes a member (or an annual type or life-time type). This creates problems and confusion when: (1) A donation is made by a husband/wife pair, (2) A donation is made by an organization, and (3) the donor never desired or agreed to become a member.

As such, we believe it is in our best interest to overhaul such a non-traditional membership structure, and use one that is conventional for a non-profit organization. We will give the following instruction to our lawyer:

  • The USTC AF is a membership based organization, power over the organization rests with the membership body.
  • We offer membership on a yearly basis, to be purchased for a fee, or to be granted with a donation, subject to a membership agreement.
  • Membership dues and membership-granting donation levels are to be determined and revised by the board on an ongoing basis.
  • We will also offer “life-time membership” for the sole purpose of continuing such commitment to existing life-time members.

ORGANIZATIONAL AND CONTROL STRUCTURE

The USTC AF did not have a clear control structure defined, leading to the confusion of: (1) Who can speak for the organization, (2) how can decisions be made, (3) who has what authority? and (4) what authorities are needed to do what kind of work?

Fortunately a typical corporate legal structure (as defined by the State of Delaware) already offers a sound set of operating rules for us. All we need to do is clarifying a few things that are specific for us, and the legal professionals should be able to help us ensure that bylaws are clearly drafted to reflect them. These instructions include:

  • The membership body elects the board of directors, on an annual basis. Each year half of the directors are up for election.
  • The board of directors makes decisions for the organization in a collective manner.
  • The board of directors shall elect a chair-person of the board.
  • The board of directors MAY appoint a “president”, a “treasurer” with all finance responsibilities, and a “secretary” with all legal and compliance responsibilities.
  • The “president” is the Chief Executive of the organization. The “board chair-person” is the president if the board fails to make such an appointment.
  • The Chief Executive of the organization shall have customary authorities comparable to a typical organization, such as those over finances, personnel, communications, etc.

With organizational control structure set above, we would not need the provisions of the various non-conventional control structure in the current bylaws, including executive committees, etc.

BOARD ELECTIONS

Every year we suffer through an election crisis where we only barely make the quorum requirement as defined by the current bylaws. We have been reluctant to lower the quorum requirement because we wanted to ensure that the board does reflect the desires of the membership body. In the mean time, the lack of membership definition and procedures also hampered our ability to know how many members we are representing. In addition, our “election by email” method may not be fully compliant with our current bylaws or state laws. As such, we plan to provide the following instructions to our lawyers:

  • We shall hold regular membership meetings, as required by state law.
  • We shall provide expedient means for members to participate in such meetings, including via electronic means, and/or delegate proxy assignments before hand.
  • The quorum for such membership meetings shall be 25% as currently defined.
  • The election of board of directors shall occur at such meetings.

With election procedures defined clearly as above, we would not need any provisions in the “procedures” and “election” sections of the current bylaws.

SCOPE OF ACTIVITIES AND OPERATION

We have now finished discussion of the major issues in our current set of bylaws. What follows are a number of additional issues we hope to address in the new set of bylaws.

The current set of bylaws defines a number of things that are typically not the “basic principals” of an organization, such as all the awards we offer. Instead, we believe that a proper set of bylaws should define a clear scope of our operations, so that everyone knows clearly what we can do, and what we can not. Many times we have been requested to provide tax-deductible disaster relief, we hope the new bylaws will clearly define the criteria for requests such as these, in principle. As such, the directions we plan to give are the following:

  • The USTC AF, as an alumni foundation, defines its mission as: (1) To promote the academic and professional excellence of USTC students, faculty, and alumni; and (2) to promote the academic and cultural exchange between USTC and outside entities.
  • The USTC AF is a 501-c-3 charitable non-profit organization as approved by the IRS, in the area of promoting education. As such, The USTC AF shall not carry out any activity or operation that is outside its mission, in conflict with its own IRS 501-c-3 filings, or against relevant federal and state laws.

PROVISIONS TO REMOVE FROM BYLAWS

There are a number of sections and provisions in our current bylaws that are inadequately defined and/or observed in our regular operations. Our suggestion today is to remove them from our bylaws. This should not change anything we do, we should write up separate resolutions to guide our operations in these areas. There are many existing resolutions that do so already. These provisions include:

  • Fund Raising Campaign Guidelines
  • Expenditure Guidelines
  • Guideline for Private Scholarships
  • Guideline for Regional Subcommittees.

IN CONCLUSION

We’ve outlined our plan to significantly revise our bylaws. While this is a major step in evolution in the maturing process of our organization, it is nevertheless not due to any major changes we want to make to the organization, or any major project the board foresees in the near future that the current bylaws prohibits. The sole reason for the revision is to bring our bylaws from a home-made format to a professionally designed format, in order to facilitate our growth and prosperity in the next 20 years.

As a membership based organization, we represent your interest. Please let us know if you have any objection to our organization adopting such a new set of bylaws, and/or if you have any suggestions for the board.

Sincerely,

USTC AF Board of Directors
