On January 24, 2013, AABANY held its Annual Meeting. It was hosted by Cravath, Swaine & Moore, in their New York office, and the firm generously provided space, food and drinks for all our attendees.  At the meeting, many AABANY members and friends got to meet and mingle before the business portion of the Annual Meeting began. President Jean Lee led the meeting and invited members to cast their votes for officers and directors if they had not already done so. While the votes were being counted, she gave an overview of AABANY’s active and productive year in 2012. Executive Director Yang Chen reported on the activities of AABANY’s numerous committees, after which he announced the Outstanding Committee of the Year award. This year’s top committee was the Women’s Committee for the excellent variety of substantive programs and networking events that greatly enhanced AABANY and its mission. President-elect Mike Huang gave closing remarks and would have announced the results of the election had they been ready at that time, but they were not, so the audience was invited to continue enjoying food, drink and each other’s company. At about 8:45 pm, the results were ready, and Mike proudly announced that the following Officers had been elected:

  • Clara Ohr, President-elect
  • James Yu, Vice President of Programs and Operations
  • William Wang, Vice President of Finance and Development
  • Jane Chuang, Treasurer
  • Karen Kim, Recording Secretary
  • Judy Kim, Membership Secretary

The following Directors were elected:

  • James Lin
  • James Chou
  • Francis Chin
  • Linda Lin
  • Teena-Ann V. Sankoorikal

AABANY’s Year-End Report for 2012 was distributed at the meeting along with the current issue of AABANY’s newsletter, The AABANY Advocate. To review a copy of the Year-End Report online go to http://bit.ly/ann_rpt13.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Annual Meeting, and thanks to everyone who submitted proxies to help us obtain quorum. We hope to see you at our upcoming events in 2013, in particular our 24th Annual Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street coming up on February 27.
