Executive Director Diana A Bien-Aime a Leader-in-Waiting

Miami-Dade College has appointed a new Executive Director of the Haitian-American Professionals Coalition (HAPC), Diana A Bien-Aime. An instructor in the Speech Communications Department at Miami-Dade, she is completing courses for her Ph.D. in Leadership and Communication. Born in New York State, she graduated from University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in 2001, and Masters in Organizational Communications in 2007, at Barry University.


Bien-Aime uses her degrees to work with organizations as a communications facilitator, and moderate education forum events on television. She is also a poet and motivational speaker. Confident in her new role, she shares her perspective on what will make HAPC an effectively-run organization: "Collegiality and professionalism . . . . along with the longevity of commitment to . . . (the) community's issues."
Her priorities as the new Executive Director are to persuade members to commit to strategies that will spur economic growth and offer mediation, formulating policy resources, civic involvement, and membership alliances.

HAPC, founded in 2001, is a not-for-profit, volunteer service association, with a consortium of professional, para-professional, civic and advocacy organizations.

Chairman of HAPC, Attorney Richard Champagne remarked how lucky HAPC is ". . . to have found such a consummate professional and transformational leader for HAPC."

With such an ambitious agenda to carry out, Bien-Aime looks forward to beginning the process that will affect the quality of life for the Haitian Diaspora all around the globe, and most importantly, for Haiti's struggling underclass.
