1. I am a non-Chinese student interested in China. Should I join the Greater China Society? Can I become an officer?
The Greater China Society (the club) is not a Chinese student only
club. Currently, 30% of our club members are non-Chinese. The club
opens its arms to all that are interested in Chinese culture,
future development, and opportunities.
YES, all club members have the opportunity to become an officer for the club.
2. How are the officers elected? What need I do?
Each club officer has his or her specific job functions. To get a
better understanding of what the functions are, please contact the
respective club officers.
To become an officer of the club, the candidate must first send in
his or her statement, which specifies the position that
the candidate is running for, some personal information, and the
benefits that the candidate will bring to the club. The statement will
be posted online (on the club website) for all club members to see.
This year, AVP elections will be held from September 18 to
September 22, and the results will be published on September 23.

School students can join the club. However, if you are interested in
what we do, please send an email to Evan Zhiran Zhou
(ZZhou11@gsb.columbia.edu) and we will add you to our club email list.
