Dear ICSPAH colleagues and friends:

Welcome to the official website of the International Chinese Society for Physical Activities and Health (ICSPAH). The ICSPAH is a non-profit professional organization. The mission of the ICSPAH is to facilitate professional growth and development among its members to promote healthy and physically active lifestyle through strengthening research and education in international communities. Currently, the Society has enrolled hundreds of life time members and general members in the fields of physical activity, physical education, sports and exercise science, and health. Please enjoy browsing our website and taking advantage of the resources that meet your interests and needs.

Over the past decades, the ICSPAH has sustained rapid growth and development in membership, organization reputation, structure improvement, and impact to the international community of physical activity and health. I am very excited to see that the ICSPAH has become a successful platform for international colleagues to exchange scholarly ideas and findings, provide opportunities for all to serve, and promote research productivity and academic wisdom. There are, of course, much more to be accomplished in the coming year. As the President of the ICSPAH, I have set the following goals for the 2018-2019 term: 1) Launch the ICSPAH Academic Journal; 2) Cohost 2018 Smart Exercise/Fitness and Healthy China International Summit in RiZhao, ShangDong; and host 2019 ICSPAH Forum in the USA; 3) Update ICSPAH website (Phase 2) to include online registration and payment options; 4) Continue to work on the ICSPAH’s financial growth through actively soliciting sponsorship and donations; 5) Promote communication and collaborations (e.g., set up official WeChat group for the members; establish expert pool with profiles; organize activities for early career scholars and graduate students; seek greater involvement of China divisions; lead summer lecture tours in China; etc. 6) Revisit Constitution and Bylaws to further improve ICSPAH’s operating structure to ensure its healthy growth. 

It is my great honor and pleasure to serve as the President of the ICSPAH and I take it seriously with wholehearted obligation. I have tremendous passion about the ICSPAH since its establishment in 2006. I am confident that I have the skills, knowledge and experience to lead the ICSPAH. I look forward to your continuing support and to working with you all to move the Society forward in the coming year. Together we make the dreams come true!

Sincerely,
