Dear Members & Friends,
It is with great honor and responsibility that I have taken up the presidency of the Chapter this year. AIAHK20++ is this year’s theme with triple meanings. Firstly, 2017 is a special year for the Chapter as well as Hong Kong SAR as they both celebrate their 20th anniversaries. It is a significant milestone to register as the Chapter has successfully served as a bridge linking US and Hong Kong’s architecture education and professional practice for two decades. Secondly, as one of the oldest components outside of the US, the Hong Kong Chapter as an organization have overcome many challenges over the years to continue to be active and relevant today. It is time to reflect on our strength as well as weakness to seek improvement with the goal of becoming a model component of AIA. Thirdly, with positive energy and optimism, we shall continue the good work in recent years to nurture emerging professionals and leaders to ensure the long term development and success of our Chapter and the profession.
