The Hong Kong Club of Oregon, a non-profit organization, was formed in the year of 2000 by a group of former residents from Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Club of Oregon is dedicated to serving the local Chinese community, especially immigrants from Hong Kong and all Cantonese speaking people.
Our mission is to offer a forum for its members to communicate and socialize with people from similar cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The club creates the opportunity for its members to exchange ideas, to foster business development and professional growth. We assist new immigrants from China, Hong Kong and other Asian countries to adapt to the new environment in the greater Portland area. Through organizing and participating in activities, we promote the cultural exchange and commercial cooperation between the local Chinese community and the mainstream society.
We welcome you to join us and look forward to seeing you all at the various functions to be proudly presented by HKC.
Addendum to Mission Statement (November 2014)
Networking between members is highly encouraged. However, to ensure mutual respect of a comfortable socializing atmosphere, hard sales or any aggressive marketing behavior including massive distribution of business cards during any events host by the Club is not permissible. Such behavior may lead to revocation of membership if more than one written complaint is received cumulatively from other Club members by the Board of Directors.
Any members who want to promote business ideas to other Club members must furnish a written proposal to host an event to the Board of Directors for review and arrangement if approved. Such written proposal must be submitted no less than 2 round months ahead of the proposed date of event. For example: An event proposed in August must be received by the Board of Directors before June 1st of the same year (2 round months of June & July). The Club does not guarantee success of any events.
All business development and commercial cooperation must take place under mutual consent of all parties involved. The Club is not providing any contact information between members. All contacts information exchanged are voluntary between members. The Club is not responsible for any complaints arise from business activities between any members. The Club is not involved in members’ ongoing business connections or accountable for any adverse relationships so resulted.
