Having deep roots and wide reach in the local Silicon Valley business community and across Pacific Rim countries, as well as a proven track record of success as a Silicon Valley-based organization, AAMA expanded into China by launching chapters in Beijing (www.aamachina.com.cn), Shanghai (www.aamash.com), Seoul, Guangzhou and Taiwan to better serve as the bridge between Silicon alley and Asia. Each chapter hosts events to localize the effort to promote business relationships and works closely with Silicon Valley headquarters to ensure members realize the maximum benefit of the organization.
