Orlando Chinese Professionals
Association (OCPA) is a Florida registered non-profit organization founded in
June 1995 by a group of dedicated and enthusiastic Chinese professionals in
Orlando. Since then, OCPA has established itself as a dynamic and influential
organization serving the interests of local Chinese as well as the community at
large. The missions of OCPA are:
To provide members the
opportunity to meet friends and exchange information, OCPA has organized many
large celebrations for major Chinese festivals since 1995. In the year of
2009, there will be five major celebration events to be organized by OCPA - the
Chinese New Year Celebration, Spring Family Picnic and Sports Competition, Summer Beach Outing,
Moon Festival/Annual Meeting, and Christmas/New Year Cooking Competition. There are also small group events to meet
the need of different members and clubs in the organization.
To provide personal and
professional connection between members and promote professionalism and
friendship among members
To promote the science and
technology exchange programs between United States and China
To advance Chinese culture and
positive image of Chinese-Americans
As one of the member organizations of FACPSU (Federation Associations of
Chinese Professionals in Southern USA), OCPA has engaged many science and
technology exchange programs to benefit both United States and China. Some OCPA
members have been invited by various Chinese government branches to be foreign
experts for advice. The engagement has also provided OPCA members the
opportunity to start up their own business or seeking the business
chances for their employer.
OCPA has actively involved in many multi-culture activities and community services
in the Orlando area. OCPA is also one of leading organizations for Orlando Chinese
Culture Month Celebration and Asian Gala every year. Both events are
officially proclaimed by City of Orlando to promote multi-culture
awareness. In addition, OCPA has been participated some of the charity
activities along with the main stream society.
OCPA is open to all Chinese professionals living in central Florida who
recognize its missions. There are currently more than one hundred active members. The
