Currently, Mr. Bah is Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Organization of Liberians in Minnesota (OLM). Prior to joining OLM as a board member and eventually chairperson, he spearheaded the fundraising efforts for the July 26th, 2015 Independence Day celebration for the organization. In that role, he succeeded in generating substantial amount of funds for a fruitful commemoration that brought together Diaspora Liberians from all walks of life. This show of capability led to the larger Liberian community seeing in him a potential to play a leadership role in OLM.
Mr. Bah was elected chairman of the Board of Directors of OLM in March 2017. His ascendency to OLM's board chairmanship was timely as the organization was in a state of near stagnancy. With his experience and knowledge of organizational leadership, he and his fellow board members have succeeded in breathing new life into the organization, setting the stage for its growth into the years ahead. Beyond his role at OLM, Mr. Bah is also involved with other community efforts.
