Hello, and thanks for your question

...and many others.

The site also includes information about membership in the
organization, which you may want to consider, at it seems to provide
numerous high-level networking opportunities.

HKANC sponsors the usual grab-bag of lunches, conferences, and other
networking events.  Their site includes highlights from past events,
including such forums as:

Thank you for your prompt response to my request; however, I am unable

more informatin for me to investigate.

Hmmm...the site opens right up for me, so I'm not sure what the
problem is.

However, here's a few options:

Try the link again with the full http address:

If that doesn't work, here's the Google cache of the page, which also
contains the list:

If neither of these work out, for some reason, just let me know, and

satisfaction for any reason, just let me know what additional
information you need, and I'll do my best to find it for you.
