– Membership program
By setting up this website, we hope to increase our membership this year. As a member, you will be invited to all CAPANA’s activities and will periodically receive information about research activities and opportunities of the Pacific Rim. We are setting up a membership database, which will allow members to learn about each others’ research and teaching interests and will hopefully facilitate more exchanges among members.
– Networking activities
We plan to use the website to inform our members research activities in the Greater China. Every year, there are numerous research conferences in the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. We plan to ask the organizers to post their call for papers and participating in our new website.
To facilitate better networking, we are exploring the idea of organize a mentoring program for Phd students and young faculty at the AAA annual meeting. We will poll our members to find out the level of interest in such an activity.
