Chinese American Construction Professionals enhances members’ competitiveness in the local and global markets; facilitates professional and business networking opportunities; serves the community and nurtures the future construction professionals.
Within past decades, the globe has experienced many major changes including economic fluctuations, scientific and technological advancements. CACP was founded by first-generation immigrants who sought public works projects. Although CACP lost several members during the recent recession, we recognized and took advantage of the signs of economic recovery when investment and business opportunities presented themselves from the shores on the opposite side of the Pacific.
Currently, most CACP directors are first-generation Americans. In order for CACP to continue its flourishing growth, the baton must be passed to the innovative minds of the second and third generations - those who can face and conquer the upcoming challenges. Hence, I feel my role as incoming CACP President is only interim. As the Chinese saying goes, "江后浪推前浪，一代更比一代強。The young generation signifies the wave that keeps pushing the water to flow continuously." I look forward to the gradual integration of the newer, more knowledgeable and technologically advanced generations into CACP, building the bridge that links Asians to the mainstream of the construction industry.
