I am pleased to announce that Dominic Ng will be the next Chair of the Committee of 100. He will take over leadership of the Committee in May. Dominic has been a C-100 member since 2000 and is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of East West Bancorp, as well as an active philanthropist and civic leader in Southern California.
Consistent with our mission to promote the full integration of Chinese Americans, the Committee of 100 proudly endorses the nomination of U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke to be our next Ambassador to China. On behalf of C-100, I wrote a letter to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to express our support.
