Wendy's Speech at PKUAA US Conference

Changyong Li (Wendy Li)
From Dallas PKUAA

Dear Beida alumni:

It is my great pleasure to be here to get to know all of you. Thank you, our dear Beida friends from Peking University, for giving us the opportunity to get together here in DC for friendship and professional development. Beida is one of most prestigious universities in the world. The Time of London ranked Beida as the 17th University world wide in 2004 and the ranking for humanity and arts for Beida was 7th world wide. I am very proud of the wonderful cultural and educational heritage of Beida. As one of the Beida Alumni, I would love to contribute to our mother university by promoting the professional, education communications and developments between Beida and our local communities.

The national Beida alumni conference is a great way to promote the communications among various local PKUAA communities and I firmly believe that this tradition will carry on in the future. As the Secretary of Dallas American Bar Association, me and my colleague at the bar association hosted the 14th National Asian Pacific American Bar Association convention in Dallas at the year of 2004. Dallas local bar association won the bid in year of 2002. Similarly, and it is simply my suggestion, our local PKUAA in various US cities might be able to bid to host the next PKUAA conference in year of 2006, if the conference is going to be held annually.

Finally I would like to thank the DC PKUAA and Ms. Xu for their hard work to put this conference together. Wish everyone have a wonderful holiday season!

海闻副校长在第二届全美北大校友会代表会的总结发言

海闻副校长在第二届全美北大校友会代表会的总结发言

2005年12月4日上午

根据代表们刚才的建议和提出的问题,总结一下。 主要是提出会议结束后回去要作的工作,我代表学校基金会和校友会在此表态,两年后大家来检查。各地校友会也要有承诺和计划,两年后也要汇报检查落实情况。

  1. 关于基金会筹款:基金会在北美的筹款工作应立足于长远目标,目前主要做好基础工作,增强校友对母校的感情。筹款工作也不只是在校友中,还希望通过校友来接触美国主流社会,通过校友来帮助母校在北美的筹资。
  1. 关于校友工作:学校要进一步加强与校友和各地校友会的联系。要建立更多校 友会,现有的各校友会也要扩大影响,增加会员。不只是人数的增加,要搞好活动和服务,工作要扎实。和校友之间的联系要更广更深。大家提到有500多在北美 高校任教的校友,这的确是一支重要的力量,北大建世界一流大学很需要这些校友的参与和支持。
  1. 关于各地校友会的工作:
  1. 各地校友会的组织结构要健全,要有会长和理事,要有章程来保证校友会领导的职责。机制上保证连续性:会长由理事、骨干中产生,老会长留任理事。
  1. 各地校友会领导要做好母校与校友之间的联络和沟通工作,与会代表有责任回去传达会议精神,也要及时向母校反映校友的意见和建议。
  2. 各地校友会要协助母校扩大在美国的影响,加强向当地华人的宣传工作。
  3. 各地校友会还应加强互相之间的联络,除了两年一次的全美校友会代表会之外,平时也应通过网络等形式互相沟通。
  4. 最后,希望各位能够为本地校友做好服务工作,工作做得越好,凝聚力就越大。大家都很辛苦,但还是要提倡一种精神,实干,为校友会奉献,核心层要做好。
  1. 关于会议中讨论的一些具体问题
  1. 账号问题。有校友会提出要单独申请免税账号,具体做法可通过律师或相互取经,也可以先用北大基金会在北美的账号,北大基金会可以为校友会设立分帐户,将分会的筹款返还分会开展活动;学校不允许设立另外的基金会,这是北大基金会北美理事会的决定,为了维护北大的利益,防止被利用。
  1. 落实承诺。赵平提出的百年校庆承诺捐赠100元的名册的问题,回去会查,并向大家作个汇报。也希望大家及时与基金会直接沟通,保持交流渠道畅通,帮助基金会做好工作。
  2. 外籍校友。重视在北大留过学的外国学生的联络工作:我们已经在做了,要和有关部门配合,争取在一年内基本建立北大留学生校友库。
  3. 北美校友子女夏令营。为北美校友的子女举办夏令营(密西根彭程提议)是个好建议,既是为校友服务,又能增强校友子女对北大的凝聚力,我们回去落实一下,可以由北大校友会组织,费用自理。校友会不是赚钱,但也不能赔钱,如果搞的话,争取今年就上马,但一定要做好宣传工作,这是一项服务。
  4. 学术论坛。北加州校友会提到的学术论坛的建议,可以与北大学者访美的机会结合起来。今后学校校友会尽量将北大学者访美的信息通知大家,各地可酌情接待和安排学术讲座。
  5. 北大乒乓球队访美。北大乒乓球队访美的建议,可以先做方案,具体由石新平先策划,时间可考虑在2006年底。
  6. 中西部和南部校友。部分代表呼吁学校更多地关心中西部和美南校友,初步考虑2007年或2008年艺术团再次访美,会考虑到这些地区访问。
  7. 北美校友会代表大会。北美校友会代表大会现在仍定两年一次,有代表提出一年开一次大会的建议,条件成熟时可以考虑。今后的代表会要加强宣传,各校友会争取来两人,还要让所在地的校友尽量参加。下一届代表大会地点于近期通过通讯表决后确定。
  8. 校友捐赠。“我爱母校”和“奥运场馆”的捐赠活动还要再推动一下。钱并不是太多,主要培养一种乐为母校捐款的风尚。这项活动在国内开展得比较好,希望在美的校友也能积极参与。

我们这次校友工作会议开得很好。大家进行了充分的交流,也提出了许多宝贵的意见和建议。现在的关键问题是怎样落实。我们要回去落实,各位也要回去落实,下次开会一起来汇报。
