The 2010 annual China Care Clubs Conference drew nearly 70 members from 20 clubs all over North America to New York University on October 1. Students traveled from as far away as Canada, California, Texas, Illinois and North Carolina to attend the always popular event.

The Conference gives high school and college club members the opportunity to meet one another and exchange ideas and strategies about fundraising, outreach, club structure and more. Various workshops allowed the students to share their experiences and collaborate in small groups.
“Listening to what other clubs do definitely gave me more ideas to improve our club” said one student. “It was great to be able to discuss and bounce ideas off each other.”
The kickoff for the conference was the first Club Alumni Reception, a thank you meet-and-greet for recently graduated China Care Club members. More than thirty club alumni and current club members attended the event.
Both events were hosted by the NYU China Care Club at the NYU Kimmel Center overlooking Washington Square Park in downtown Manhattan. The NYU club members even opened their dorm rooms to accommodate traveling club members staying overnight.

China Care Clubs play such an integral part in spreading awareness for the children in our medical program.
