Jiang is a Senior Director at Credit Suisse.  She gave an overview of the association with its 12 regional chapters.

Founded in the U.S. in 1994, TCFA has served as a central venue for Chinese professionals and students to exchange ideas, to learn from each other, and to advance their careers. Since the beginning, TCFA has served as a bridge between the U.S. and China in the field of finance. Truly a networking organization, all teams and board members work on a volunteer basis.
