The New England Chinese Professionals 2014 Lunar New Year Gala is co-organized by 16 New England Chinese-American professional associations. These are non-profit, non-political professional organizations with members in diverse industries and professional fields, such as high-tech, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, healthcare, law, business management, higher education, finance, accounting, entrepreneurship and many other areas. These professional associations collectively have over 4,000 members, many of whom are leaders in their respective fields or industries.

The 2014 Gala and Forum is part of the overall objective of the organizations in joining forces to enrich one another, to build bonds within our communities, and to celebrate our common cultural and historic heritage. We anticipate a number of government and business leaders, as well as dignitaries to attend this event. Additionally, a number of medical, legal and business professionals and entrepreneurs have already accepted our invitation to provide professional or educational consultation. Similar to last year, we expect that over 500 people will attend the event this year.
