President's Words

Dear Members,

CASPA is planning a series of seminars. In January, we will have two soft-skill seminars:

On 1/23/19, CASPA, CAISS, and CIE will jointly host a seminar on the topic of “Negotiation and Reducing Stress in Workspace.” It is free for the first 40 registrants, so register soon.

On 1/30/19, the seminar topic is “Critical Thinking Skills Applied in Current Events Analysis.” This is the first of the 10 series in the leadership development seminars tailored for CASPA member only.

These are a few examples of the benefits for being a CASPA member.

If you are not a CASPA member yet, I encourage you to join CASPA today. Our individual life-time membership is only $100, with one time payment.

Happy New Year everyone!

Danny Hua
President and Chairman, CASPA
