The Central Council of the Korean National Association
As President of the Central Congress of the KNA, Dosan was deeply involved in the political well being of Koreans in America and freeing Korea from the Japanese Occupation (1910-1945). Dosan's political and Independence Movement ideals for the Korean community outside Korea can be seen in the Central Council resolution.
The Central Council of the KNA shall administer the regional conferences, and all business related to the Korean independence movement shall be under it administrative supervision.
Efforts shall be made to bring about unity under the charter of the Central Council.
Membership badges shall be made for distribution among members of the KNA.
The Congress of the Korean National Association shall be held regularly, but each Regional Conference shall maintain its own uniqueness to represent its region.
A sum of two hundred dollars shall per annum be paid to the Central Council by every Regional Conference. The delegates issued a three point proclamation with a preamble stating since the old dynasty had met its demise; the Central Council of the KNA representing all overseas Koreans would support the organization in unity.
The Three Points were as follows:
The Central Council of the KNA would be the supreme organ of the Koreans abroad, and it would maintain autonomy.
It would be the duty of all Koreans abroad, regardless of where they were, to recognize the leadership of the KNA, and the KNA would be solely responsible for encouraging all Koreans abroad to carry out this duty.
There would be no application fees or dues, but each Korean abroad would pay taxes according to the regional circumstances and taxes collected would be sent to the KNA.
