Because of this, I could not think of a better way to highlight the exciting people, events and opportunities in which our 2013 CalCPA community can engage than in our language—numbers:
- 11,235 and growing: CalCPA members in the Los Angeles Chapter.
- 1,000+: Members, attorneys and bankers expected to attend our networking events this year.
- 500: Members who volunteer their time annually to advocate for important CPA issues on the annual trip to Sacramento.

A big THANK YOU to Grant Thornton for their generous support of CalCPA!
For U.S. companies keen on exploring new markets, business opportunities are emerging in Asia and the Chinese mainland. Hong Kong’s close trading relationship with both the mainland and the United States, as well as its status as Asia’s international trade and financial centre, make it the preferred platform for American companies looking to tap new business opportunities in the region.
With the support of CalCPA and a variety of business organizations, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council will organize a symposium in Los Angeles June 14, together with a range of business seminars. High-profile speakers will share their thoughts, and Hong Kong business representatives will visit the United States to meet and explore new collaborative opportunities with the locals.
Corporate leaders, small and medium-sized enterprises, service providers, economists and academics are invited to the event to discuss developments, trends and new business opportunities.
Date/Time: June 14; 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
