On September 13, 2022, Council President Rupert Hammond-Chambers spoke at the “2022 Taiwan Emerging Leaders Workshop” held by The Formosan Association for Public Affairs (FAPA), in Arlington, Virginia. In announcing the event, FAPA said:

Since 2010, FAPA has organized the FAPA Emerging Leaders Workshop normally every two years. This week-long Workshop invites outstanding young talents around the world to Washington, D.C. to learn about U.S.-Taiwan-China relations and exchange views with each other. FAPA has cultivated more than 150 emerging leaders thus far, including Member of LY Wang Ting-yu, City Councilors Ying-meng Lin and Jiho Chang.

2022 FAPA Emerging Leaders Workshop is held especially in memory of Taiwan’s independence pioneer and legend Dr. Lee, Ying-Yuan.

Mr. Hammond-Chambers was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from FAPA in recognition of his participation. The Council thanks FAPA for the opportunity to participate in the workshop.
