New Chinese American Associations

Unlike traditional overseas Chinese associations that can be traced back centuries, new Chinese associations are less closely tied to China. But they do still seek to be a voice for their community and to protect their civil rights.

These papers cover the years 1889-1961 and include minutes and committee papers, correspondence with the Foreign Office, and representation of commercial grievances in Hankow and Tientsin.


The Chinese Association has a diverse membership representing all fields of professional endeavor. Many members hold advanced degrees and work in universities, corporations and government agencies. Others have been successful in the arts, finance and law. The Association also offers networking and professional development opportunities for Chinese Americans in New York and around the country.

The China Association was founded as a dinner club for gentlemen with an interest in China. It was formally constituted at a meeting held on 11 April 1889 and chaired initially by Sir Alfred Dent, a prominent China merchant.

As a member, you are helping to support your community and the people that make it unique. The Scarsdale Chinese Association is non-profit, a registered 501(c)(3) organization. In addition, you’ll be able to network and meet fellow Chinese Americans and have access to cultural activities. Membership is free of charge. All you need is an interest in your community and a willingness to support its mission.


In the wake of the Magnuson Act repealing the Chinese Exclusion Act and allowing for a quota for immigration, associations formed to provide social, cultural and political support. These included professional and trade organizations, civic, religious and women’s groups. CCBA was the oldest and largest of these organizations, with offices around the country and its membership consisting of family associations and individual members.

In a society marked by diversity, the CSA provides forums to promote cross-cultural understanding and respect. It promotes research, scholarship and public education in the field of Chinese art and culture, through the J.S. Lee Memorial Fellowship Program and the Bei Shan Tang Doctoral Thesis Grants.

The PCA works to help at-risk Chinese American and immigrants gain access to much needed social services, including food stamps, medical coverage, housing, job training and other necessities. The organization is also committed to preserving and celebrating Peoria’s Chinese history, community and heritage. In addition, the organization organizes Chinese school classes and banquets for its members.


Many charitable organizations rely on money raised through fundraisers and donations to operate. Often, the organizations are unable to raise enough funds to cover all their expenses.

In the midst of the pandemic, some charity organisations have struggled to find donors. “With the strict containment measures and economic challenges, a lot of enterprises have stopped funding offline charity activities,” said a businessman surnamed Chen.

The organization has helped workers and immigrants in the Chinatown community. For example, it helped a group of wait staff win $110,000 in unpaid wage settlements and helped Boston maintain bilingual ballots for its Asian community.

The CSA is a non-profit organisation that works with mainstream organizations to provide services for the community. It has also been active in lobbying for better living conditions and public services for Chinese residents of the city, such as improved crosswalks. The CSA is supported by donations from members and local businesses. It has also received a number of grants from government agencies.


Although leadership research generally focuses on universal theories, there are significant contexts that shape leadership practices and behaviors. One such context involves state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in China, which are considered important drivers of the economy and have implications for both business and society.

In the past, SOEs were managed by centralized decision-making structures. However, in the wake of recent corruption scandals, SOEs have become decentralized and more autonomous. This shift has led to a more collaborative, humanistic leadership style.

The Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of Augusta started out in 1882 with the formation of a local branch by a group of old China hands (Chinese immigrants). These “Old China Hands” were mostly representatives from the larger China Houses and Members of Parliament from the China block. The Association negotiated with the Foreign Office over commercial grievances in China, produced quarterly summaries of Chinese domestic and international affairs and translated the Chinese press. They also lobbied on behalf of British trade.
