On Sep 30th, 2023, we celebrated the 30th anniversary of SAPA with the Red Carpet Ceremony and Reception and a Black-Tie Gala Dinner in Hyatt Regency Hotel, New Brunswick, NJ.

The Red Carpet Celebration was a rare gathering that included Dr. Xiucai Liu, SAPA's founding president, along with more than 40 past presidents, chapter presidents, board members, advisory committee members, and council members. They joined with executive council members to sing SAPA's birthday song.  

In the black-tie Gala dinner, special recognition was extended to the founding president Dr. Xiucai Liu for his life-time achievement and devotion, and to Dr. Xiaodong Chen, 2021-2022 President for his great leadership and contribution in the past 3 years. The 2022-2023 SAPA President Dr. Yongmei Li and 2023-2024 President Dr. Jack Wu also expressed heartfelt thank-you to the dedication and hard work of SAPA executive council members and volunteers in all chapters. 2020-2021 SAPA President, Dr. John Sun, along with two SAPA executive council members, Dr. Yongle Pang and Ms. Yulan Zhang, co-hosted various artistic performances, celebrations, and commemoration activities, which created a long-lasting memory of the 30th anniversary of SAPA.
