Most of these officers continue their services from their respective preceding terms. We deeply appreciate their willingness to serve and continuous contributions. Virginia Shen (Membership Committee chair) and Chih-Ping Yeh (Young Scholar Program (YSP) committee chair) expressed their desire to step down. Both have done a great job during their tenure. Please join me in thanking and congratulating them for their contributions. With their respective recommendations, Li-Lin Cheng has accepted the position of membership committee chair and Jimmy Ching-Mng Chen, YSP committee chair. We look forward to their excellent services. The advisory board is a new ad hoc board from which I solicit advice regarding various NATPA functions. I thank JC Han for his willingness to help. Following the convention of most professional organizations, I have asked Chung-Chih Li, immediate past president, to serve as the nominating committee chair, mainly responsible for nominating new board directors and president.


Chung-Chih Li did an outstanding job as our president for the last two one-year terms. During these past two years, he held two remarkable annual conferences and enhanced NATPA’s image as a prestigious organization.  For example, renowned politicians and scholars such as John Bolton and Richard Fisher were invited to speak at the conferences. NATPA’s involvement in expressing our concern about National Taiwan University’s selection process for its president also illustrated our love for our motherland. (In this case, we also appreciate the contributions of several NATPA members such as Tun-Hou Lee, Frank Hsiao, Peter Chow, and CP Yeh.) Let us give Chung-Chih Li our loudest applauses.


Please continue your enthusiastic support for NATPA for another year of success and vitality.


Sincerely,

Jeff
