2017 CBA Chinese New Year Gala


Saturday, January 21, 2017; 6pm - 10:30pm

Glenview Mansion at Rockville Civic Center Park

603 Edmonston Drive, Rockville, MD 20851

Formal attire (black-tie optional)


Again this year following a tradition of over two decades, CBA, one of the largest Chinese American biopharmaceutical professional societies in the U.S., will host its annual New Year’s Gala on January 21 (Saturday), 2017, to celebrate the Chinese New Year (The Year of Rooster). 


CBA’s New Year Gala is one of its signature annual events.  Each year, it is well attended with over 200 distinguished guests from the greater Washington DC area. Our guests include entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, scientists, company CEOs, federal and state governmental officers and legislatures, as well as top diplomats from the Chinese Embassy.


Our past VIP guests included US senator Ben Cardin, US congressman Chris Van Hollen and Eni Faleomayaega, Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, State Senators Susan Lee, Karen Montgomery, and Jennie Forehand. Officials from the Chinese Embassy included the former Chinese Ambassador Zhou Wenzhong, former Chinese Ministers Liu Guangyuan and Yang Zigang as well as the former Consulate-General Chen Xiong-Feng, to name a few. CBA’s New Year Gala has become the “must attend” New Year social event for those who are interested in the pharmaceutical and life science industry in China and the United States.


The 2017 Gala will be held once again at the beautiful and historic Glenview Mansion in Rockville, Maryland. Cocktail reception will start at 6:00pm and a buffet dinner will be served at 7:00pm.


On behalf of CBA, we wish you all a happy and peaceful holiday as well as a prosperous 2017.  We look forward to seeing many CBA supporters and friends at the Gala on January 21.
