蔡英文總統新政府剛上任,執政黨國會過半,民主自由照亮了台灣。TACWC將以「發揮台美人能量,點亮台灣」為主題,呼籲北美洲台美人,以他們的經驗及能量,來幫助並促進台灣改革及經濟重振。

 

今年夏令會的節目非常豐富。主題演講講員包括:代表蔡政府宣揚治國理念的官員;林昶佐立法委員;開發網路平台非常成功的第二代Kevin Lin。分組專題討論將邀請專家來廣泛研討:轉型正義、高科技、教育、文化、經濟等悠關台灣改革的議題。年靑人(包括2G1.5G)也會積極參與夏令會,他們以「行銷台灣」到國際的計劃與大家分享。夏令會的餘興節目,我們很高興,已邀請到加拿大Vancouver著名的25人〝蓬萊合唱團〞在星期六午宴後演唱。星期六晚宴後也有小提琴的獨奏及其他表演。
