In the 1980’s the number of Chinese transportation professionals has grown considerably in the United States and Canada. In order to promote the professional development of fellow Chinese who have an interest in transportation related work in North America, many Chinese transportation professionals felt strongly that we should organize as a group. After years of preparation and effort, the North America Chinese Transportation Professionals Association (NAICTPA) was formally founded on January 10, 1988. To promote greater participation, the organization was renamed the International Chinese Transportation Professionals Association (ICTPA) in 1995.
Since its founding as a nonprofit professional organization, ICTPA has grown from a few dozen members to over a thousand; and we now have chapters in all regions of the U.S., and various locations in the Greater China Region (Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau). We aim at promoting professional development of our members by fostering fellowship and cooperation among them. With the economic growth in the China Region, challenges in the transportation field beckon responses from near and far. It is, therefore, natural that ICTPA-USNE membership and supporters should include persons of different nationalities, drawn together by an interest in the development and opportunities in China.
The US Northeastern Chapter
In an effort to promote regional activities, ICTPA divides its memberships into several geographical regions. The Northeastern Chapter was formed in 1994 and has members from several states including New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
