ITASA 2017 East Coast Conference at New York University: Intertrak

Thursday, February 16th from 12:00am to Saturday, February 18th, 2017 11:59pm (ET)
East Coast Conference 2017 will be taking place at New York University from February 16th-18th. With this year’s theme of “Intertrak”, we hope that the beautiful vibes of NYC as well as the long history of its subway and metro systems will inspire you to attend ECC and connect with like-minded individuals!

The Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Students Association(ITASA) is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to connect, inspire, and empower Taiwanese American students across the country. Since 1993, ITASA East Coast Conference is hosted at various universities annually. Each year, ECC attracts over 300 active community leaders who care about their culture and professional development. During this three-day conference, attendees will be able to participate in workshops led by prominent speakers, enjoy fun social events to interact with other undergraduates, and join small groups for reflection.  

Conference Theme: Intertrak

Life  seems like a solitary train ride in which we do not always know what will happen next and who we will meet along the way.  However, it is the process and experience that truly matters. You will also be surprised to discover how much in common you have with others- such as strangers on your commuting train- who are seemingly on a different journey from that of yours.

Intertrak is a train that is speeding through a series of workshops covering cultural, personal and career developments. Intertrak invites passengers who identify with or are interested in Taiwanese American and Asian American culture. Boarding on Intertrak, we want passengers to connect with each other on a deeper level and build lifelong networks with like-minded individuals.

Are you ready to share a ride with people who might become your lifelong friends?
