Inspired? Host the 2014 East Coast Conference!

Every year, ITASA generally holds three multi-day conferences on the East Coast, West Coast, and the Midwest. These conferences are planned and staffed entirely by students, and they feature lectures, workshops, and performances all from well-known Taiwanese Americans. These annual regional conferences provide a unique opportunity for college students to learn and think about their identities, increase involvement, and build lasting friendships with people that share their passion for Taiwan.
