2017 ITASA East Coast Conference



The Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Students Association
 is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to connect, inspire, and empower Taiwanese American students across the country. Since 1993, ITASA East Coast Conference is hosted at various universities annually. Each year, ECC attracts over 300 active community leaders who care about their culture and professional development. During this three-day conference, attendees will be able to participate in workshops led by prominent speakers, enjoy fun social events to interact with other undergraduates, and join small groups for reflection.  


Conference Theme: Intertrak

Life is a long journey, and along the journey we meet and interact with passersby and people who become our lifelong friends. Inspired by the Amtrak train system, the name of the 2017 East Coast Conference is Intertrak. Intertrak is a train that is speeding through a series of workshops covering culture, personal and career developments. Intertrak invites passengers who identify with or are interested in Taiwanese American and Asian American culture. Boarding on Intertrak, we hope passengers connect with each other on a deeper level and build lifelong networks with like-minded individuals.
