Message from the President

Dear SCCAEPA members, friends, ladies and gentlemen,

One year ago, I accepted the challenge of being the President of this wonderful organization, nervously, and worried that I will not be able to fit into such a big shoe. Today, I am not less nervous but tremendously grateful because of the support from our devoted board members, and members like you.

2016 is truly a harvesting year. We established a Next Generation Committee that reaches out to the young professionals.  In August, SCCAEPA hosted the successful Los Angeles Environmental Forum.  Then the energetic NGC organized a Job Hunting Workshop and Beach Cleanup day.  We are so proud because we are such a great team as it has been.

Meanwhile, we are fortunate to have support from many sister organizations, and generous sponsorship from Edison International, Metropolitan Water District and many professional institutes.

In 2017, we are ready to face more challenges and prepare more activities.  April 8, 2017, another Job Hunting Workshop will be held at California State University at Los Angeles.  The Los Angeles Environmental Forum is scheduled on August 28-31, 2017 with a Special Conference focusing on soil and groundwater remediation on August 23-26, 2017. The NGC also plan to have the beach cleanup day in October.  We are excited and looking forward to your participation.

Sincerely,

Eric Wu, Ph.D., P.E., President of SCCAEPA (2016-2017)

各位南加州華人環保協會的會員朋友們大家好:每年在過年前後,我們聚在一起慶祝南加州華人環保協會在過去一年所累積的成績。2016年初,我們成立了青年委員會(簡稱青委會)。八月間,舉辦了盛大的洛杉磯環境論壇,10月裏,青委會主導了求職講座和海灘淨灘活動。所有這些活動是因為我們充滿熱誠的理事以及您的支持。在此我要感謝會員們和各個學會的參與,以及所有的贊助。

今年我們準備了非常豐富的活動:包括在4月8號即將於Cal State LA舉行的求職講座,8月28號到31號之間的洛杉磯環保論壇,以及土壤地下水修復培訓班也同時將於八月的23到26號舉行。此外,青委會也預計在10月間再一次舉辦海灘淨灘活動。我們誠摯邀請您參與我們的活動,並繼續您對華人環保協會的支持,謝謝。
