Welcome to the Chinese American Chromatography Association (CACA)!
CACA was formed on May 12, 2008 during the HPLC’2008 conference in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. We are a non-profit organization and our missions are (1) sharing technical information in the area of separation sciences, particularly in the area of chromatography, within the United States and around the world; (2) providing a network for members to share experiences and help each other in career development; and (3) providing a forum for interacting and developing cooperative relationships with other separation organizations, particularly in mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
Under the leadership of our former presidents, Dr. Yan-Bo Yang and Dr. Michael Ye, CACA has grown significantly in the past years. We have now more than 300 members from academia, government and industry. We have also established good relationship with other organizations, such as CASSS, MACC, LCGC and SepuNet. During the past years, CACA has successfully organized workshops and dinner events at Pittcon and HPLC conferences with many invited speakers from academia, government, and industry to give highly inspired speeches. We also have had many sponsors from industry, which made it possible financially to organize the events and provide assistance to students at these events. Please visit our website at www.ca-ca.org and LinkedIn group at http://www.linkedin.com/groups?mostPopular=&gid=1857030 for more information.
While members of the Association are mainly Chinese American and Chinese scientists working in the US, all separation scientists from other nationalities and other parts of the world are also welcome to join. The membership is on a voluntary basis and free of charge.
I hope to see you at one of CACA organized events in the near future. Please pass the information about CACA along to your friends and co-workers.
Good luck to you and CACA.
