Tsinghua Alumni Association in Greater Chicago Area (THAA-Chicago) was initially established by the Alumni of Tsinghua University from both Beijing and Hsinchu back in 1970s'. It covers the states of Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa and Michigan. With more and more of our Alumni studying, working and living in US, our association has been growing every year. Currently it is estimated that around 1000 Tsinghua Alumni are living in Greater Chicago Area and there are more than 450 members actively attending the association's activities. We are an IRS approved non-profit charitable organization which will have 501(c)(3) Internal Revenue tax exempt. This may help our alumni or friends to have their donation to be tax exempted ( please consult your accountant for confirmation ). If you need further information, please contact us.
The association is governed by the board. The board members are usually elected every two years by the members. Based on the need, multiple officers may be selected by the board to assist board's work. For the detail information, please see the by-law.
The advisors of the board are invited by the board based on the member's nomination. Usually they are the senior Alumni with extensive and successful life and career experience in US. Their advice and help are extremely valuable to the healthy growth of the association. The board especially appreciates their help.
The following is the organization chart of the current lead team. We are looking for more alumni to join our leadership team. Please contact us if you would like to join us or have any suggestion.
