25th USCPFA National Convention
September 11th -13th
Emory Conference Center and Hotel

We encourage all of our Atlanta Chapter members to attend the 25th USCPFA National Convention, which we are hosting. After discussing this for many months, it is less than two months away. Full info on the Convention is in the centerfold of your Spring issue of the US-China Review, or you can visit the Convention website at: 

We will have a great program offering updates on many aspects of Chinese affairs. You will have the chance to enjoy interacting with USCPFA members from across the country. We on the leadership committee would love to see all of our members sign up for the full three days of the convention. While the convention fee may seem high, members from other chapters also have to pay for a plane flight to reach Atlanta. If you don't find this convincing, there will still be an opportunity to attend the convention for one day - Saturday, September the 12th, when we have a full slate of sessions in the morning and a visit to the Carter Center in the afternoon. That evening we will host a banquet style dinner with a fine presentation on Chinese art afterward. If you would like to sign up for this one day, please email of call Ed Krebs for particulars (edkrebs@hotmail.com or 770.949.5112).

We will need lots of volunteers, including members to greet attendees as they arrive on the afternoon and evening of the 11th and others willing to drive from the hotel to the Millennium Gate Museum on Sunday afternoon. (see post on I-Hsiung Ju's Brush Paintings)

I-Hsiung Ju's Chinese Brush Paintings at the Millennium Gate Museum and the USCPFA National Convention

An exhibit of Professor I-Hsiung Ju's brush paintings will open at the Millennium ´╝žate Museum (http://thegateatlanta.com/) on July the 31st, 2015 and run through October the 18th, 2015. Professor Ju's daughter, Doris, has managed her her father's paintings since his death several years ago. Doris and her family, USCPFA members, will attend the convention on September the 11th - 13th and will also have a small display of Professor Ju's work in our exhibit room at the convention. The exhibits will be a great feature at the convention - you don't want to miss this!

We would like to arrange for convention attendees from out of town to see the Millennium Gate exhibit on Sunday afternoon if they wish. Please let us know if you can be available to take some of the conventioneers there and back to the hotel on Sunday afternoon, September the 13th.
Thanks for your help!
