CASPA 2012-2013 Chairmans 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 the CASPA's traditional events, we have added some new programs to help the career growth for the young professionals in our community. We had a kick-off Autumn Technology Seminar on Nov. 7 with two distinguished speakers -- Joe Yang, President and CEO of CHT Global, and Ian Ferguson, Director of Server Systems and Ecosystem from ARM Limited, talking about Applications in Cloud Computing. We also had a year-end seminar on immigration by Hong-Jin Guan, Attorney from Pacific Law Group, covering the processes to get H1B working visa and permanent residence in the US. In 2013, we will have a series of mentoring and coaching workshops on career development for the young professionals. 

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