Wealth management seminar PDF Print E-mail

 

Dear ICIA Family,
I am pleased to announce a seminar event this coming Sunday (April 7, 2018 2pm ~3pm) at the lobby area of Johnston Middle School.  The topic is on wealth management, and the speaker is Mr. Adam Collins of Wells Fargo Advisors. Please feel free to pass the message to your friends and family members in the Chinese community.
Also, I would like to use this opportunity to give everyone a heads up on a few things. As three board members either moved away or started to work in other cities, we have identified three members who are willing to serve our organization and community.  The formal introduction will come after our next board meeting.
Another topic is the voice or need of members or local Chinese community.  We would like to hear back from you on any suggestions or ideas on activities, seminar topics, and community service opportunities.  You can send your suggestions to me or any of the board members.  You can also check our website for updated posting of our activities (http://iowachineseinagriculture.org). Our festivities, seminar or activities will be posted on the web page, and the photos will be loaded in the photo gallery.  If you encounter any issues accessing the site, please let me know.
Thanks,
Shujun Chang
