This announcement comes with good wishes for Professor Amy Lau, one of our founding Council Members, who announced earlier on that she would start a new and joyous chapter in her life upon her retirement from being the Chair Professor of Accounting at University of Hong Kong. Professor Lau has kindly agreed to stay on board as Council Member until the forthcoming AGM. May we propose a sincere vote of thanks to Professor Lau for her incessant and tremendous contributions to AWAHK over the past eight and half years. She is going to return to US afterwards. To express our gratitude to Professor Lau’s staunch support for AWAHK, we organized a farewell dinner for her on 20 June 2014.
