This is the first time that I am seeking the re-election. 2008 is my first year in USTC-AFGB.
My effort was focused on fundraising, broadcast AF and pushing a united USTC alumni organization. And currently I am a member of a sub-committee in USTCAF, which will work mainly with USTCIF for a more united alumni foundation. There are a lot more works in front of us. I hope I still can get the chance to serve our alumni community.

I joined the AFGB since 2005 and served as the Vice Chair of GB in 2006. I was a board member of AFGB in the past 4 years.
2008 was definitely memorable for most of us. We had been so emotional for so many things, from the riot in Tibet, the devastating earthquake in SiChuan to the excitement in Beijing Olympic, the happy reunion in USTC. Of course, everyone of us had experienced the financial tsunami that profoundly changed the world and our daily life.
For AF, 2008 saw the continous and steady growth in donation despite the world wide recession. We had argued, resolved and moved on from many hot issues regarding the direction of AF as an organization. Hopefully, we will unite more closely in the coming year and try our best to bring AF to the next level. As a humbled supporter, I would like to commit another year to help on this noble cause and serve the USTCers around the globe.

I was proudly elected as a AF board member in 2007 and 2008. In addition to my efforts in fund raising and promoting USTC and USTCAF, I have been volunteering for the management of Goodwill Scholarship (爱心奖学金) program in the past two years. Having the challenging and rewarding experience as a board member, I am better motivated by our belief “Together we make a difference” than ever before. Prior to joining USTCAF board, I had been the president of USTC Alumni Association in Maryland for two years.
If re-elected, I will continue my service for the Goodwill Scholarship program and I will try my best to improve our IT infrastructure, including database management and website construction.
Thank you for your support!

USTC is one of the most important experiences in my life; therefore, return and contribute to the Alma Mater is always my top priority. In the past years I have devoted myself in a lot of USTC activities; name a few: One of the USTC Boston Alumni Association founders; initiated USTCAF 772 Fund in 1999, proposed and started the first USTCAF High School Students Award in 2001, one of the first USTCAF Goodwill sponsors since 1999, initiated the “50 Years-USTC Physics” 772 sponsorship.
My passion and professional training would help me to serve USTCAF in an effective and efficient way. Thank you for your vote.

I proudly strived to accomplish my undergraduate education in pure mathematics at USTC during 1985-1990, also a critical time for my emotional and spiritual growth. I managed to become a Ph. D. candidate in Number Theory at Ohio State University. Less a dissertation, I graduated with a Master degree in 1997. I had since worked for about a dozen US companies of start-up nature, pursuing my wealth dream. For last a few years, I have been teaching Mathematics to college students at Los Angeles area, including at California State University.
"Legend that sustains, passion that thrives, community that bonds, platform that accommodates -- so much USTCAF has been.
Now, against the backdrop of a raging financial crisis and woeful economic recession (which, truth be told, affects us all), we may naturally ponder over the following question: What results will AF be able to deliver in 2009?
Option #1: Automatically go down a gear to settle in the "new reality" before conditions get better;
Option #2: Re-activate recent years' strong moving-forward momentum by rallying the spirit of Alma-mater loving and giving from thousands of members in our great alumni community;
Having served on the 2007, 2008 AFGB, I'm a believer of the 2nd option, and I'm currently seeking a 3rd term. Being a passionate and hopefully skilled communicator at large, I believe my contribution hasn't run out of steam :) It's a privilege to run a campaign, it's an honor to be endorsed by you, it's a great joy to join the unrelenting efforts from talented men and women on the board, and, it's an ultimate reward to work with and serve our alumni community on a common purpose.
The challenge before us is real, the road ahead is not a straight one, but know this, dear fellow alumni -- Together in unity, we can make a difference, we can play a vital role in building the future USTC. Thank you for your vote and trust."

I was on the USTCAF board last year. It was a truly humbling
experience. Many passionate alumni I met through the year convinced me
that it is a worthy cause to spend time on. We made concrete progress
towards a united alumni foundation but left a number of great ideas
unfinished. If elected to USTCAF board, I'd like to continue push for
the following initiatives:
1. Work toward one united, single ustc alumni foundation with one
objective - to help ustc to be the first class university that
provides first class education in China. The other things will take
2. Strategically use ustc alumi foundation's fund for the biggest
impact. Including promoting keda's public reputation, sponsoring key
positions (professorship, PR role etc)in keda. I believe this will
help the fund raising efforts for the alumni foundation.
3. Revise USTCAF by-laws to make it a more effective organization in
the areas of decison making and continuity.

Since the very early days of the AF, I've been a strong believer of its mission and charter. As such, I served a number of GB terms in in our early years, contributed the first corporate matching fund in 1998 (which approximately equaled our fund size at the time), set up the AF resolution process and wrote the first couple of resolutions myself. I had also been providing technical infrastructure for various AF related web site and other activities.
I came back to serve in GB'2008 and believe that I made a good deal of contribution maintaining the proud tradition of our organization, and especially the integrity and ethics of the GB when we were faced with difficult decisions. Sometimes I had to take unpopular positions, but I believed such is the price of achieving our long term viability and my efforts were worthwhile. I would appreciate an opportunity to serve again in GB'2009, as well as your continued support.

It was my great honer to sit in USTCAF board during the past year. I want to continuously contribute this year. I love USTC and believe that USTCAF is dong to right things to help our USTC to go out of the current difficulty. Meanwhile, the top priority for USTCAF, I believe, is to become more professional: act things quickly, affirmatively and professionally. I devoted my time and effort on this last year. I will continue to do so this year.

I am always proud of being a USTC alumni and ready to serve our communities. Year 2008 is very important as we overcome quite a bit to reach our goal and keep us united. Year 2009 could be even more difficult. I decided to run for another term to help build a better and stronger AF. If elected, I will keep focusing on reaching AF's fund-raising goal and promoting alumni networking and connections with USTC.

I have been serving on the board of alumni association in greater new york area (USTCAA-GNY) since 2005. Last year I was elected as a AF board member. The experience on AF board is very unique, rewarding and challenging. It was fun to work with passionate people, see the value to think big and realize the importance of taking steps, even small, towards the direction we believe to be right. If re-elected, I am willing to focus on 1) fund raising and 2) building a tighter connection between AF and USTCAA-GNY and 3) promoting alumni networking. Thanks for your and trust and vote!
