President's Words

Dear Members,

On March 9, CASPA held the Spring Symposium. We had full house attendees and very positive feedback including new technology concepts and business engagements. As an added benefit to our members, we made the presentation slides available to download here:

4 days later, we hosted a financial seminar on tax preparation and estate planning with trusts. Speaker’s humorous talk and lively Q&As reverberated around the entire room.

The next upcoming event is Education Day. CASPA is glad to invite speakers from students, teachers, and industry professionals to cover debate, math, biology, STEM competition, college survival, time management, and life-long learning. Parents and students are welcome. Due to limited seats, please register early:

Also, for those who want to participate in CASPA board election and/or high-school junior scholarship, please make sure to join CASPA as individual member before April 12 to be eligible.

Best Regards,

Danny Hua
President and Chairman, CASPA
