Chinese-American Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (COAA)
Message from the COAA President
First of all, as the new president of COAA, I sincerely wish you and your family a very Happy Chinese New Year! Under the leadership of the former president Dr. Kunghwa Wang, COAA has made remarkable accomplishments in the past year. In addition to maintaining and strengthening some traditional activities such as the spring workshop and fall BBQ, the Best Dissertation award was initiated to recognize outstanding research by graduate students of Chinese origin.
COAA's continual success relies critically on the keen support and sacrifices of our members, especially the board members. Taking this opportunity, I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to you, our dearest members, both new and lifetime ones, for your trust and your contributions to COAA's development year after year. Most importantly, I am deeply thankful for the financial support from many of our individual members through donations and from corporations (e.g. ERT, IMSG, ITEC and others) through sponsorships of various programs, which are key for keeping COAA an active non-profit organization in providing continuous services to our members not only in US, but also in Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and worldwide. With almost 400 members embraced in our member list, we sincerely look forward to a more prosperous new year of the snake!
We welcome all ideas or suggestions. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
