Ms. Alice Chan

Alice is an Accountancy graduate in 1977. She started her career as an assistant assessor with the Inland Revenue Department, and in November 1981, joined Price Waterhouse (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) as a tax senior. She was assigned to work in London for 18 months during 1986-88. She made partner in the firm in 1990, where she remained until she took early retirement in 2000. During the 10 years, she joined the Executive Committee of ACCA Hong Kong and became President of ACCA Hong Kong in 1997, just before the sovereignty of HK was handed back to China. In 1999, she became President of AGA (the former name of AFGA) and also joined the Council of the Federation of HKPUAA. She was also an adviser to the university's Accounting Department during 1998-2000.

 

Alice emigrated to New Jersey, USA in 2000. While she is fully retired in her professional life, she has taken on some voluntary work. She helped form the university's alumni association in the eastern region of the US and is honorary secretary there. She is also a director/honorary secretary of the Overseas HK Association in NJ and a director of the New Jersey Chinese Cultural Studies Foundation.

 

Other than her voluntary work, Alice now spends her time traveling (and she visits HK at least twice a year), watching TV, especially the shopping networks, and doing stained glass projects.
