Dear Members and Friends,
Greetings from AIA Hong Kong! Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
In December we had our Holiday Party at PMQ and, more recently, the AHEC sponsored seminar on American Hardwoods. Both events were successful and well attended by members and friends.
Our Holiday Party was held at PMQ in early December to kick off the festive season. Thanks to Event Sponsor, Orientop, it was a fun event with a great turnout showcasing the Chapter’s office at PMQ. Our special guest was Bertrand Coldefy, President of the Continental Europe Chapter of the AIA International Region. Beyond that, it was good to see more young members joining the fun, including students from CUHK and SCAD from the US. There was a charity raffle, with some gifts donated by our Corporate Affiliates and AIA Hong Kong. We collected HK$5,000 and the Chapter will double that amount and donate it towards two charities – the Society for Community Organizations – catering to the housing needs of the urban poor here in Hong Kong – and the Spandana Society, an NGO offering a home for street children in Hyderabad, India. Thanks again to our members, friends and CAs, as well as Catherine and Vivian who worked hard to make this a meaningful and a memorable event. Members mentioned that it was good to see younger members and friends and wanted to see more events at PMQ showcasing our Chapter Office. Read more
