    Dear CCFA members and friends:

    We successfully held our CCFA 2010 Summer BBQ Party on August 8th, 2010 in a city park at Eglinton/Leslie.  As one of the CCFA annual social events (the Bay Street Xmas party is another well-known annual event), this year’s BBQ party attracted about 200 people’s participations and was supported by over 30 volunteers.   

    CCFA’s newly elected president Yong Wang delivered an opening speech with the new executive team’s mandate of “Expand our Scope, Enhance our Image”. (Please check out our website www.theccfa.ca for more details on the new executive team’s mandate). CCFA’s new vice president Mingqiang Bi, who just came back from China, met with participants.  New vice president Dianna Zhang and past president Ti Wang helped organize the activities with over 30 other volunteers.   

    As a volunteer-based non-profit association, CCFA’s success relies on each member’s support.  For the BBQ event, the executive team would like to thank the following volunteers for their contribution on the event preparation, event organization and post-event news release.  Since we received so many supports during the event, we definitely have missed some volunteers in the following list.

    BBQ event planning and execution:  Xiaobo Wang and Jun Yuan.

    “第九届北美留交会暨中国高校招聘专场”即将于一周后(2010年7月8日起)在旧金山、纽约、多伦多三地召开。目前,大会组委会正紧锣密鼓地进行大会的 最后筹备工作;海外学人也纷纷向组委会报名,准备参加此次盛会。与前八届北美留交会相比,本届留交会呈现以下几个显著特点。




    高 校一直在中国被认为清水衙门,工资待遇比企业低。所以,在列届北美留交会上,欲回国发展的海外学人,愿报名去中国高校工作的不多。但今非昔比,到目前为 止,在第九届北美留交会报名者中,希望去中国高校工作的海外学人占了报名者的百分之三十以上。这是由于中国经济经过30年腾飞,中国高校也飞速发展。在这 次第九届北美留交会上,北京对外经贸大学、东北林业大学、福建工程学院、厦门理工学院、昆明学院等5所中国高校联合来北美招揽海外人才,他们提供的薪资很 高,待遇也很好。如北京对外经贸大学法学院为海外学人开出了最低30万最高35万元人民币的年薪,相当于年薪5万多美元。如按照中国的实际购买力与物价水 平,则比美国10万美元年薪的生活水平还高得多。在这次大会上,就连位于中国西部地区云南省昆明市的昆明学院,很多招聘岗位均开出了年薪25万元人民币的 水平。这说明,中国西部的经济也在突飞猛进,正向中国沿海发达地区靠拢。在这次大会上,中国的企业开出的年薪更高,厦门某一企业开出了40万元人民币的年 薪。令人更为惊讶的是,中国哈尔滨市的第三中学,也将走出国门参加本届大会,为该校招揽4名海外高层次人才,并开出了不低的年薪(15万元人民币)。这是 北美留交会举办近十年来,第一次有中国的一所中学向大会组委会报名,并来北美设摊招聘人才。这说明,随着中国经济的快速发展,中国的教育单位不仅高校甚至 大中城市中小学的经济状况也越来越好。


    第二,领导高度重视 ,招聘阵容强大


    在第九 届北美留交会上,来北美招聘的中国高校、医院、企业等单位,都由负责人亲自挂帅,飞赴北美,在会场与留学人员面试、洽谈。如北京对外经贸大学的国贸学院院 长、法学院院长、金融学院院长;东北林业大学校长;昆明学院院长;厦门理工学院院长;厦门市第一医院院长助理;厦门中山医院院长;昆明市延安医院党委副书 记;昆明市第一人民医院副院长;厦门市三安光伏有限公司总经理等。这说明,中国招聘单位尤其是领导,对海外人才高度重视,派出了强大的招聘阵容,并由于有 经济基础作支撑,底气十足,招聘海外人才有势在必得之势。




    参 加第九届北美留交会的国内招聘单位来自中国的5个城市:北京、厦门、福州、昆明与哈尔滨。他们提供的招聘职位众多,达967个,其中金融岗位12个,企业 岗位335个,高校岗位524个,医院岗位92个,中学岗位4个。这说明,由于中国经济的崛起,让中国从发达的沿海地区到原来相对落后的内陆地区,从大型 国营企业到一般民营企业,从高校到中学,从医院到科研机构,中国已全方位向海外人才敞开了大门,并拥有了招聘海外人才的经济实力与底气。




    至 目前,报名参会的海外学人层次很高。在数百名报名参会的海外学人中,拥有博士学历者占百分之五十以上,拥有硕士学历者占百分之四十以上,两者相加达百分之 九十以上。报名者的专业领域涵盖广泛,包括信息技术、生物、医学、经济、管理、金融、法学、文学等。另外,在这次报名参会者中,拥有工作经验者占百分之八 十以上,其中,有五年以上工作经验者占百分之六十以上,有10年以上工作经验者占百分之二十以上。这说明,美国的经济至今仍比较低迷,就业形势至今仍十分 严峻。许多原来有工作的海外学人失去了工作,许多现仍在工作岗位上的海外学人也面临失业的危机。美国经济的不景气,也从另一个侧面,凸显与衬托了中国经济 的崛起。

    Now it is the time to move on. I will continue to support CCFA, and wish we all work together to help CCFA’s causes.

    Thanks again,

    Ti Wang

    Dear CCFA Members,

    At the request of our President Ti Wang, I am co-ordinating the CCFA election.

    As you know, President Ti Wang has been running our CCFA for 3 years now, and he has made tremendous progress and achievement during his term. There will be a separate note about Ti's contribution. According to the CCFA Bylaw, it is time for a new election call.

    The election process is highlighted as following:

    1.    Election call message sent out to all members (this message);

    2.    As per Bylaw, any member can apply for the president candidacy. Any interested candidate is required to submit his/her application together with an election statement to me within 2 weeks from today, that is, application has to be submitted by the latest April 24th;

    3.    After receiving all the applications, within one week, I will send the candidates' materials to the CCFA Board of Director members for election. Please refer to our website for the election process (www.theCCFA.ca);

    4.    Within 2 weeks after BOD members receive the candidates' material, all the BOD members are required to vote on the candidacy by email sending to me and Charles Cai, our current secretary;

    5.    Charles and I will review the voting results and report them to the BOD members;

    6.    A BOD meeting is then called by current President Ti Wang, to welcome the new President, and the new President will deliver his/her key messages/statements to the BOD about the CCFA new future state and vision;

    7.    At this point, President Ti Want will officially announce the new President to all the CCFA members;

    8.    The new President will then send his/her message to all the CCFA members and deliver his/her key messages. At this point, the election is officially finished.

    It has also been proposed by President Ti Wang that during the election process, BOD members will also vote on if the CCFA needs a Chairperson (理事长) position of the BOD. If it is agreed based on the voting results, the new President will carry on the continued election of the Chairperson (理事长).

    To clarify, I am not applying for the new President position, so there will be no conflict of interest.

    If you are interested in applying for the presidency, please send me your application together with your election statements by April 24th, 2010!
