The morning of August 18th, ChinaSF hosted the SPRING Singapore delegation at our headquarters in downtown San Francisco.  The delegation consisted of CEOs and elected council members from various well-established trade associations that work with SPRING Singapore.  These associations included Singapore Logistics Association, Singapore Infocomm Technology Federation, Singapore Manufacturing Association, Singapore Furniture Industries Council, and International Enterprise Singapore.  Together, we had a productive talk about establishing volunteer networks and grooming volunteers to be valuable ambassadors that engage new members.  Another interesting topic we discussed was how to create initiatives that help champion small businesses.
