Message from the CEO

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our members a Happy Lunar New Year! While it is unfortunate that we are still under MCO 2.0 for the holidays, I would still like to wish you all well as we move into the Year of the Ox. Celebrate to the best of your abilities, safely, and may we draw from the ox’s stability after a tumultuous year of the rat.

It feels like we have not seen many of you for a very long time. So to ensure you know that your AMCHAM community is still with you, we are going to start holding some general ‘Coffee’ segments and town halls. Please look out for these to roll out and drop in – you never know who you will meet.

International Women’s Day is fast approaching, and AMCHAM is hosting a half-day virtual program on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, so be on the lookout for registrations opening soon. We look forward to insightful presentations and robust discussion around our theme for this year: Opportunities for Women in a Digitized World.

Don’t forget to take advantage of our member’s only Chinese New Year 15% discount on all advertisements. Book your slot before the promotion ends TODAY, February 11 with Yvonne Miranda at [email protected].

I am also excited to announce that AMCHAM is bringing back PULSE, our monthly newsletter that went on hiatus last year. You will see it refashioned into a quarterly magazine that will feature the topics of interest to the membership, industry news, major recent events, etc. It will also allow us an additional platform that can highlight our members, their work and passions, and other lighter aspects of AMCHAM.

Please let us know if there is anything, in particular, you would like to see in an AMCHAM magazine by sending an email to [email protected].

As we head into the year of the Metal Ox, may we draw from the Ox’s resilience, perseverance, and strength and have a fortuitous new year. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
