 “西弗华协”由理事会和执行委员会组成。其最高权力机构为理事会大会,包括11名理事;执行委员会由“西弗华协”会长和分管日常事务、科教、外联、查尔斯顿地区(Charleston,WV )和亨廷顿地区(Huntington,WV)的五位副会长组成。在“西弗华协”成立大会暨第一次执行委员会会议上,周昆教授当选为理事会大会主席,张汉霆教授为“西弗华协”会长,丁敏、郑万宏、梁瑞凤、孙小平、刘健等教授分别为负责上述分管领域的副会长,刘志为秘书长。会上表决并通过了“西弗华协”第一届理事会大会和执行委员会的任命,讨论并表决通过了“西弗华协”章程(Bylaws)。与此同时,与会代表们还讨论了“西弗华协”未来的发展方向,科教活动(尤其是中文学校)与外联等方面工作的开展。另外,作为中国旅美科协总会(CAST-USA)在西弗的分支机构,西弗华协将行使旅美科协西弗分会(CAST-WV)的职能。

近年来,美国发生多起涉及华人重要权益的事件。 “西弗华协”的成立也将有助于团结所有在西弗州的华人,并与美国华人全国委员会(UCA)一道,为更好地争取在美华人的合法权益发出统一的声音。




Thank You All for Helping Panda Restaurant

In February, Panda, a local Chinese Restaurant, was severely damaged by fire and was forced to close. The owners, Deng Jingyang and Tang Xiaoling, are long time Morgantown residents and sponsers of WVCA. The Chinese community started a donation call and so many people responded. We want to thank everyone who helped, by donating, collecting donation, and by visiting and comforting Deng and Tang. Below is the list of donors (ordered by last name).

Dear All,

As you may or may not know, WVCA has been approved as a non-profit organization (NPO). This was a great achievement and would benefit the whole Chinese community of WVCA. Any contributions to WVCA will be tax-deductible.

In addition, we want to thank HAN Hong, the Principal of the Morgantown Chinese School (MCS), HUANG Ying, the Vice Principal of the MCS, ZHOU Hui, Treasurer of MCS and WVCA, and all the parents of the students at the MCS, for their help and support; the MCS shared half of the expenses. Finally, we are very grateful for the following people for their generous contributions:
