December 2017 Edition
Dear Ascend Members and Supporters,

Happy Holidays!

2017 has been an exciting year for Ascend and the Pan-Asian community! We powered up at the 2017 National Convention in Houston, our Pinnacle Summit in Palo Alto, our Golf Outing in Manhattan Woods Golf Club and numerous other events throughout the year such as the Chapter IAG Conferences. I am so proud of everything we have accomplished and look forward to seeing you all in San Francisco on August 20-22, 2018 for the 2018 National Convention!

As you do your year-end giving, please keep the Ascend Foundation in mind – click here for instructions.

Lastly, I want to wish you and your families happy holidays and may the new year bring you good fortune, happiness and prosperity!

Warmest Regards,

Jeff Chin
President, Ascend
