COAA Family and Friend Gathering Day 2013
The 2nd annual COAA Family and Friend Gathering Day took place on October 12 in Cabin John Regional Park, Bethesda, MD. It was a nice day for picnic in the cool and slightly misty weather following several continuous rainy days. About 50 people, including many long-term and new COAA members from the Washington D.C. area and visiting scholars from China, attended this event. Everyone enjoyed meeting with old and new friends in a very relaxed atmosphere. Families of COAA members also participated with great enthusiasm. The President, Zhanqing Li, greeted all the attendees and highlighted the success of COAA Hongkong conference.
