There is an increase of annual membership dues in both US dollars and Renminbi. The bigger amount of increase in USD partly attributes to the continuous appreciation of RMB against USD in the past two years.

Discounted meals on June 20 and 21 are also available for spouses to book when registration on line, but the Welcome Lunch on June 19th is not available for booking online.

You will receive the lunch coupons with your registration packet on site.
