OUR HISTORY

洛杉磯台美商會「Taiwanese-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Los Angeles」簡稱為TACCLA,為一非營利組織,創會於1980年,迄今已歷40寒暑。由於時序的遞嬗及累積,商會不斷的成長發展,在南加州,以及全美,都是頗有聲譽及規模的社團。

 

Taiwanese-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Los Angeles (TACCLA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1980 with 40 years of rich history. In the last three decades since its founding, TACCLA has evolved and grown into the reputable and sizable organization as the community know today.

 

為了鼓勵台美人第二代來參與商會活動,融合不同時代環境,讓商會傳統得以延續傳承,青商部於2000年由前會長李木通發起,前會長陳柏宇先生及溫玉玲小姐成立。

 

To encourage second generation Taiwanese Americans to be involved in chamber of commerce activities and understand the need to countinue the traditions of TACCLA, gain the ability to thrive by adapting to the ever-changing times through integrating its value and objectives to the prevailing social environment, TACCLA created Taiwanese-American Junior Chamber of Commerce of Greater Los Angeles (TJCCLA) with the aforementioned goals and the ultimate objective of passing down the torch to the next generation of abled leaders. TJCCLA was initiated by Honorary TACCLA President Dr. Tom Lee and founded in 2000 by Honorary TJCCLA Presidents Mr. Paul Chen and Ms. Lynn Wen.

 

青商部的目標如下:

 

The objectives of TJCCLA are as follows:
