Kimmel CenterFrom Victor Ng, International Convenor, WYCAA Eastern US Chapter,

"Since the INC announced the selection of the Eastern U.S. Chapter as the host of WYIC2012, the Organizing Committee, under the leadership of co-chairs Lap Yan Cheng and Peter Lau, has made a lot of progress in the preparation of the event.

Various functional groups and sub groups have been set up. These include: Conference Program, Editorial Board, Finance and Marketing, Gala Dinner, Local Hospitality, and Media Group.

WYIC2010 will last for 3 days - from Aug 3 to Aug 5 in 2012 (Friday to Sunday).

On Friday, we will have registration and a evening reception. The main conference program starts on Saturday. We will have Gala dinner in the evening. Sunday we will have a half day program including a morning mass. There will also be other non-conference activities including local sightseeing and activities for spouses.

The conference will be held at the Kimmel Center in New York University (a truly remarkable conference venue). Hotel accommodation will be at the Marriott Downtown (a beautiful hotel near the World Financial Center and the New World Trade Center site). The waterfront Battery Park, Wall Street are not too far way and can be explored on foot. There are subway stations nearby as well as ferries to New Jersey.

A theme for WYIC2012 has been chosen – “Men for Others” (click here). We expect to have the WYIC2012 web site up and running in a few weeks. You will be able to find more detailed info on the website."
