Dallas Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet was held today 6/23/19 at Crowne Plaza Addison Hotel. Banquet started with warm greetings from our VIPs: US Congresswomen Eddie Bernice Johnson, US Congressman Lance Gooden, TX State Representative Angie Chen Buttons, Town of Addison Mayor Joe Chow, City of Richardson - Mayor Pro Tem Mark Solomon, City of Dallas - ​Council Member Tennell Atkins, City of Dallas - ​Council Member Lee Kleinman, and our very own two new Plano City Council Maria Tu and Lily Bao.


Two Keynote speakers for banquet this year: Dr. Andrew Lee, Dean of UT Southwestern Medical School sharing with us his passion in world renowned hand transplant case studies as well as his Taiwanese upbringing which most of us can relate to. 

Second keynote speaker is Mr. Steve Yates from DC. He was Deputy National Security Adviser to the Vice President to Dick Cheney from 2001 to 2005 and a past Idaho Republican Party Chair from 2014 to 2017. He is the CEO of consulting firm DC International Advisory, in that role since 2006. He shared with us how Taiwanese American business men and women should utilize the unique relation we share between US and China to act as individual promoter of our own Taiwan identity.


Our Chamber had the privilege of having Dallas Chinese Philharmonic Choir perform three Taiwanese traditional folk songs with us to end our annual banquet on a high note.

本商會成立於1992年,在達福地區深耕主流社會及亞裔社區已逾二十餘年,在歷任會長及理事們的努力之下商會發揮了極大的功能,不僅在文化、教育上為台美之間有實質的互動與交流,在海峽兩岸三地更是商機交換無限。我們歡迎您來加入這個大家庭!
