Second Benefactors Day attracts 400+ in Guangzhou

07/19/2018

 

Over 400 attendees gathered in Guangzhou, China for the 2nd Annual IFSCC Benefactors Day, 12-13 June 2018. After the successful 2017 Benefactors Day, the programme was expanded to two days this year. Many thanks to IFSCC Public Relations Chair Mr Simon Chan, and his Organising Committee (Lisa Yuan, Albert Leung, Cecily Wang and Gavin Chung) for putting together such a educational event, along with China-SCC President Mr Zheng Weidong.

This event was made possible by the donation of many Gold and Silver Level Benefactor educational subsidies, which largely covered the programme’s expenses. We thank our Benefactors again for their generosity.

Speakers included current IFSCC Vice President Prof Dr Jürgen Lademann (Germany), Prof Vania Leite (Brazil), and Dr Frederick Leroy (France). Former Praesidium members who spoke were Dr Claudie Willemin (France), Dr Fujihiro Kanda (Japan), Dr Miki Minamino (Japan). Also speaking were the UK SCS President, Ms Grace Abamba (UK), IFSCC Public Relations Chair Mr Simon Chan (Hong Kong), Dr Masato Yoshioka (Japan), Dr Jiyeong Kim (Korea) and IFSCC Secretary General Ms Mary Lynn Halland.

We are looking forward to the 3rd Annual Benefactors Day next year.
