The Newly Installed Branch Executive Pose for pictures with the Section and Sub-Section leadership. The moment we have all been waiting for.
The Installation was conducted by a panel involving CPDM hierachy from the Section, the Sub-Section and the Women's Wing at both Section and Sub-Section level.
THE INSTALLATION BRIEFING
Needless to say it has been a tough road not only for the Branch but for theSub-Section as well. This journey started many months back during the last Section Conference held in Atlanta. One Special Lady who now carries the title'Mother of the Atlanta Central Branch', Comrade Henriette Malouma attended the conference and felt the need to mobilize other Cameroonians in her network to start a Branch. It took several meetings hosted by Comrade Malouma to get us on the right path, It also took great commitment on the part of the Sub-Section Executive to lead this path.

Plans are currently under way to receive His Excellency B C Foe Atangana, the Cameroon Ambassador to the United States of America in Georgia. Following an Audience with the Ambassador, at the Cameroon Embassy in January 2009, Mr. Sammy Ngalame the CPDM South Eastern Sub-Section President invited His Excellency on behalf of the Cameroonian Community in Georgia for a visit.
Ambassador Foe Atangana accepted the invitation and will be happy to visit Georgia to dialogue with the community. This meeting will provide a platform for Cameroonians to share their concerns and help improve relations with the Embassy.
One of the goals of CPDM South Eastern Sub-Section and CPDM USA is to push for Dual Nationality for Cameroonians in the United States. We hope that the Ambassador will underscore the importance of Dual Citizenship to the Legislative branch of the government as they continue their deliberations on this issue in this legislative year.
Another issue we need to highlight to the Ambassador is the need for the South Eastern region to have a Consular Service to help facilitate the needs of the Cameroonian community as well as the needs of potential investors, tourists and others interested in Cameroon.
It is therefore vital that all Cameroonians come together not only to welcome the Ambassador but to listen to his vision for Cameroonians in the United States of America.
The CPDM South Eastern Sub-Section is reaching out to the Entire community to participate in this meeting with the Ambassador. Time, date and place will be announced as soon as that information is available.
Volunteers are needed to help plan this visit. You do not have to be a CPDM militant to attend or to offer help in making this a success for all Cameroonians.
Please note that the Ambassador is here to serve all Cameroonians no matter their political affiliations or resident status in the United States of America, he wants everyoneto understand that he is not coming to Georgia for a Political meeting but to visit and meet all Cameroonians.

CPDM SOUTH EASTERN SUB-SECTION HOSTS THE LEADERSHIP JOINT CONFERENCE OF CPDM USA NOV. 21-23-2008 IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA.
South Eastern Sub-Section President Mr. Ngalame and Dispute Officer Mr. Emile Kangue and other Delegates settling down for a day of deliberations at the Joint Conference
She continued " Dear Comrades, I encourage you to stand strong, don't give up, don't give in. Your Participation in this conference testifies that we will stay
It was quite phenomenal indeed.
Friday Nov. 21. 2008 was a night like no other to go down in history as the first conflict resolution and reconciliation meeting of all wings of the party in the USA. Since installation in 2008 the party leadership faced certain operational conflicts which in the long run if not addressed and properly resolved may help to destroy. Leadership got together the night before the joint conference to iron out some of those burning issues such as Finances, the relationships between the organs, installation of new Sub-Sections, leadership style and Communication breakdown in party rank and file. The heat was on but this was necessary to clear the path for a better CPDM USA, with the greatest vision focusing on Nation Building and intergrating the Cameroon diaspora in decision making and policy issues affecting all of us and our future generations.
It was certainly a long night but millitants remained committed to completing the goals and objectives of the night, tabling all possible issues to be addressed.
Comrade Lawrence Elonge from Albany New York a Potential Branch President rolls the camera on all the action of the night. It must be quite an animation to have captured. Yes he did capture the moments of just how passionate the CPDMers can be sometimes in the midst of Oye ye ye ye ye.......lol. I am sure the footage will make quite an exciting viewing eventhough we have no word yet from our Producer on the release date....lol. Comrade Jackson Nanje spotted above in the picture, in the red top and black hat showing some Southern hospitality to our delegates.
On a very serious note, important issues were addressed and sometimes these issues appeared very uncomfortable for Section leadership but the purpose of this leadership meeting was to look into all such issues that have held back the CPDM Section in many ways. Finance was key in the deliberations. Resolutions were tabled and the Section Leadership Promised to follow up. Militants called on the leadership to put the house in order for the good of the party.
After all deliberations were over, all militants united in celebrating and wishing Mrs Patience Tamfu a happy B'day, she turned 16 on this special day..... don't ask me how the gig went down......I know it was fun.....lol

Another major highlight for the South Eastern Sub-Section was the visit of the Vice President of the Cameroon National Assembly, Hon. Rose Abunaw Makia, who was on a Private visit with her family in Atlanta and accepted our invitation to a Special BBQ reception in her honor. Pictured above with the President of the South Eastern Sub-Section Mr. Ngalame and the WCPDM Sub-Section President Mrs Ayuk who presented her with Plaque in recognition of her leadership. She was very delighted to accept the Plaque and promised never to forget her ties with this Sub-Section. She proceeded to share a word of encouragement to all in attendance, reminding us that we are ambassadors of our country Cameroon and even more so as millitants of our great party.
Addressing Millitants, friends and family who came to Welcome her, Hon. Rose Abunaw Makia was very pleased with the show of Southern Hospitality. She is not new to the Georgia Community as she had visited some three years back when she promised that on her return to Cameroon she will ensure that the CPDM in the USA gets the mandate to operate as a Sub-Section and indeed she kept her promise. CPDM USA became an Official Section in 2007.
Honorable in her address called on the leadership to allow the Lower Organs to use their own initiative and increase activities and this will help to grow the party. She repeatedly stressed that lower organs should not be supressed they should be encouraged.
The Sub-Section had some little delights and a few refreshments to share with the Special Guest, Hon. Rose Abunaw Makia. A BBQ was grilling while community leaders, friends and colleagues exchanged warm welcome messages with her.
