USCPFA - SOUTHEAST FLORIDA CHAPTER - (formerly PALM BEACH COUNTY CHAPTER)

USCPFA - SOUTHEAST FLORIDA CHAPTER - (formerly PALM BEACH COUNTY CHAPTER)

Our name was changed at our April 30, 2011 meeting from "Palm Beach County, Florida Chapter" to "Southeast Florida Chapter" because we now have members in several Southeast Florida counties and we wanted to better reflect our membership with a more encompassing name.

We have at least 3 luncheon meetings a year to discuss projects and business activities. Our luncheons usually feature a presentation by various Chinese interests. We sponsor students with scholarships and recently contributed to our chapter member Marylou Brunetta's participation in the World Championship triathlon in Beijing, China being held in September, 2011. For several years we have sponsored a Chinese New Year GALA with performances by very talented local Chinese Artists which is directed by our chapter member, Monica Shang who is also one of the contributing artists.
