USC now has an Office in Shanghai!

October 27, 2009, by TofflerN, category Uncategorized

Tonight my Alma Mater officially opened its first office in Mainland China!!  In a great event, starting with the office open house and continuing with a cocktail reception and ribbon cutting ceremony, the University of Southern California did (as usual) a spectacular job heralding the opening of its Shanghai office!

Not only was the food good and the drinks free, but I also got to see many familiar faces in the Shanghai alumni group and from my college days long ago.  Perhaps the highlight was seeing my former boss, SVP of University Relations, Martha Harris.  I enjoyed meeting new USC people and re-connecting with many others.  I’m looking forward to renewed energy, enthusiasm, and participation in the USC Alumni Club of Shanghai.

The new USC office is located on the 27th Floor in the Chong Hing Financial Center on Nanjing West Road.  The ceremony took place at the JW Marriott, just across the street from the office.  The USC Global Conference starts in Taipei on Thursday.  USC will open other international offices in Asia within the next year, namely Seoul, South Korea and India.

    Dear NYFA:

    ]I am a proud alumni member and television producer and working on a live event show to be shoot at The Mercedes-Benz Arena on December 6th. I am looking for qualified stage managers, script supervisors and Production Assistants who are available to work. They must live in Shanghai and be fluent in English.

    I would love to see if your offices have some connections in the community. I need to interview and lock crew members by the end of the week.

    Thank you so much.
