1 Yige Ding (丁一戈), class of 0601, justindtc AT gmail.com

2006-2010 BS, USTC
2010- now M.S. Columbia University

I am studying Operations Research at Columbia University. My undergraduate major was Mathematics at USTC. I exceled as leaders in different associations at USTC, where I was heavily involved in various student professional organizations on campus, and I learned to maximize publicity and profit for the groups.

What is more, I have endless passion for life and positive attitude even in difficulty, which I believe would benefit the USTCAF. Finally, I am good at writing, that I have published a prose book in China when I was in USTC. I firmly believe that I will do everything I can do to serve the USTCAF. Thank you for your time and consideration.

2000-2005 Johns Hopkins Univeristy, Medical School (Ph.D. Physiolgy)
2006-present Johns Hopkins Univeristy, Medical School (Post-doc Neuroscience)

我参与了前面两届三年AFGB的工作。经历了AF近年来逐渐正规化的过程。特别是上一届GB对于bylaws的修订;财务制度的规范化和网站工作规程等方面上做了大量的工作。

我希望能够有机会继续服务于校友。

2007-present Ph.D Candidate, Department of Physics, Tulane University
2003-2007 USTC BS in Physics

我从去年开始在AF工作,为校友服务,在各位师兄的指导下,花了很多时间熟悉了校友基金会的运作,也学到了很多东西。同时我也意识到AF其实有很多资源,如果有更多人手的话,可以有更多的项目可以开展。所以,我决定继续参选2011年的理事会,分担一些理事会的日常工作,并积极推动AF新的项目和服务。
4 LI, Xun (aka Steven, 李逊) - class of 856 s t e v e 9 8 at gmail dot com
Present: Partner, Not-yet-launched Technology Incubator
2006 - 2011: Director of Technology, Cisco Systems
1991 - 2005: various odd jobs in Silicon Valley and elsewhere
1989 - 1991: MSEE, Univ. of Hawaii
1985 - 1989: USTC

I was involved with the AF since the early days, and have managed the
do the following in the 2010-2011 term: 1. Built a new accounting
system for the AF, now tracking all aspects of our operation, and make
all information available to our members in real time. 2. Built a new
web site for the AF, now one of the contributors. 3. Served as
volunteer bookkeeper and reconciled our financial books for the
1995-2010 period, and each quarter starting 2011, again with all
detailed records open to all members. 4. Edited first one of the new
newsletter series. 5. Recruited volunteers for a number of operations
and fund-raising functions.

I see a number of big challenges ahead for the AF. We are not engaging
with the alumni community nearly well enough, we don't yet have a role
with fund raising responsibilities, we are not tracking the 1000+
award recipients over the past 16 years, many of whom went on to
prominent careers. Much of the work ahead of us take in these general
directions, starting with mundane tasks such as publishing our
newsletters regularly. I hope to serve again in the next term, and
would also encourage everyone else to participate, either in the
election and run for board seats, or in the future as a volunteer to
help with all the work needed, mundane or otherwise.

I have been a believer and supporter of USTCAF through donations  since 1996 after I met with one of the founders. I am supporting students through Goodwill Scholarship and sponsored four students in the last year. Currently I am serving on the board of a local elementary school foundation.
As USTCAF board member, I will contribute ideas for fundraising and particularly focus on programs that support students in financial needs.

I got involved in the Alumni Foundation when it first started, and have been its chairman in the past year.  We have done a lot in the past year, especially we had a smooth transition during a difficult time.  I'd like to continue to serve it in the new year, not as its Chairman but a board member only.  I hope we can have more alumni joining it and help it grow.

1991 - 1996, USTC Department of Biology
Currently, GlaxoSmithKline, RTP, NC

I have been a long time member of USTCAF since 1998.  Starting in October 2010, I began my volunteering with the governing board of USTCAF (GB2010) and have been involved with many activities such as bylaws revisions, USTCAF announcements, members' inquiries, the new USTCAF web/forum/accounting systems, newsletters, and other spontaneous issues.  Looking at the past year, I think the board of 2010 has made substantial progress on several fronts of USTCAF business such as
  • The accounting and finance (transfer of accounts and the guardianship in spite of two treasurer appointments within 4 months);
  • Good Will scholarship fund raising (112 financially challenged USTC undergraduate students received four-year sponsorships at RMB3000 per year, among whom 12 students entered USTC in 2008 and 50 students in 2009 and 2010, respectively) that was more than double of the good will fund raising efforts in a regular yea;
  • Bylaws revisions (two rounds of revisions transforming/enhancing/supplementing the rules on membership, election procedures and administration, the duration of term and the internal running of governing board, etc.);
  • IT infrastructure such as a new USTCAF web site, a new web-interfaced accounting system, a proprietary USTCAF discussion forum for exchanging opinions within the board and between the board and our members;
  • Improved frequency and timeliness of our engagement with the member base such as newsletters and spontaneous Q&A with members, etc.
However, there are still much to do and to continuously improve at USTCAF.  In recognition of this fact, I am willing to run for a seat in the next board of 2011 and continue working towards the missions of USTCAF as well as serving the members of USTCAF and the larger community of USTC alumni.
