CASPA 2012-2013 Chairman’s Words


    Greeting! I am proud to inform everyone in CASPA's community that we have kept a very strong momentum as CASPA has transitioned to the new team since the 2012 Annual Conference.

    We have a near-record high number of corporate members, including many world leading companies in IC design, manufacture, system, solar, as well as venture capitals and financial service. With the cloud computing leader VMWare recently joining us, we have expanded to the software & service world, which is rooted upon semiconductor technologies. We will keep the momentum and go further in this direction.

    In additional to CASPA's traditional events, we have planned some new programs to help the career growth for the young professionals in semiconductor and related IT industry. We first kicked off an Autumn Technology Seminar on Nov. 7 with featured  speaker Joe Yang, President and CEO of CHT Global, talking about VOIP - Riding on the Cloud, and Ian Ferguson, Director of Server Systems and Ecosystem from ARM Limited, talking about ARMing the Cloud. On Dec. 5, we will have a year-end seminar on immigration topics by Pacific Law Group and JW Law Group, covering the processes to get H1B working visa and permanent residence in the US. We will also have some mentoring and coaching workshops for career development in 2013.

    We had also just finished a very successful delegation trip from Nov. 11 to Nov. 24 traveling 6 major Chinese cities including Beijing, Tianjin, Jinan, Qinhuangdao, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou. CASPA team had attended 2012 Beijing International Microelectronics Symposium (BIMS) and 14th China International High-Tech Fair, visited 7 Economic & Technology Development Zones and Science / Technology Parks, and 4 leading IT companies -- Baidu, Lenovo, Hisilicon and Tencent. CASPA had conducted two very successful forums in BIMS and Guangzhou IC Industry Base on the increasing technology trend in smart semiconductor technologies and devices.

    With many exciting programs set forth, CASPA is looking forward to another prosperous year to grow and expand in 2013. CASPA team will work harder to bring more values to our corporate members and individual members via all activities and services. I appreciate the support from every one of you as CASPA's sponsors, members, partners and friends, and wish a wonderful Christmas holiday season for you and your family.

Chairman & President, CASPA
