Abiding by its principle of Cooperation, Development and Contribution, ACSE has organized many major events in the United States of America and China to build platforms and bridges facilitating the exchange between US and China, and between members and non-members in the areas of sciences, technology, culture, economics, and business. These events include conferences, annual conventions, job fairs, business promotion events, and seminars on education and career development as well as culture differences between USA and China, etc. These events served ACSE members and the communities well. Many prominent leaders in industry, academy, business, and government were invited to these events. For example, former US Defense Secretary, then Senator Mr. William Cohen, the first US ambassador to China Mr. Leonard Woodcock, former Chinese ambassador to USA Mr. Daoyu Li, deputy Secretary of Chinese Department of Science and Technology Mr. Jinpei Cheng, Nobel Prize Winner of University of Chicago Professor Merton Miller; Former CME Group Chairman Mr. Leo Melamed, US Congressman Danny Davis, former Chinese Consul General in Chicago Mr. Ping Huang and many other outstanding leaders in their fields have been invited to deliver the keynote speeches at ACSE conferences and seminars. The Illinois Governor has recognized and applauded ACSE's services to the communities and effort to promote US-China cooperation and economic development. Former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said in his greeting letter to ACSE: "the ACSE has promoted mutually beneficial scientific, economic and culture exchange between the United States and China... Chicago is the proud beneficiary of a strong community from China that has played a significant role in the history of our city and continues to make important contributions to the collective good of all citizens."


This year is ACSE's 20th anniversary. ACSE has grown out of her infant stage and becomes stronger. With the ever growing Chinese-American community in the United States of America and ever increasing economic ties between China and USA, ACSE will play an even more important role as a community leader and strong advocator in promoting the cooperation between US and China, and in building a strong Chinese-American community to contribute to the mainstream value and society development.
