This month’s Member Briefing features a talk on China’s education system by Lenora Chu on November 7 from 17:30 to 19:30 at Four Seasons Jing An Hotel. Chu is the author of LITTLE SOLDIERS: An American Boy, a Chinese School, and the Global Race to Achieve. The well-reviewed book examines China’s educational methods and whether these methods are something to which the West should aspire. She will provide highlights from her book and insights on the positive and negative aspects of China’s educational system. Copies of the book will be available at the event.

Following the talk, members will have an opportunity to meet with candidates for the 2018 AmCham Shanghai Board of Governors. We have an outstanding slate of candidates for the five Board seat openings this year. Meet the candidates and make an informed vote.

Admission to this event is complimentary. All members are required to wear a current Membership Card during the event for identification purposes. We are unable to accommodate non-member guests at this briefing.
