The WSCRC congratulates Nelson Dong, a board member and former Chairman of the Washington State China Relations Council, on being selected by the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of their eight “Directors of Year” for 2021. The board members are recognized for their outstanding contributions to a range of companies and non-profits across the region and beyond.
The PJBJ noted that “these directors have helped navigate their companies through challenging times. They were nominated by their peers as standout board members and leaders and include members of corporate and nonprofit boards”.
In selecting Nelson as one of the “Directors of the Year”, the paper cited Nelson’s continuing service to the Washington State China Relations Council and in particular his efforts to have the Council adjust and adapt with the onset of the pandemic. Nelson has been instrumental in the Council’s move to producing well-recognized webinars on China related topics that impact our community from the introduction of the new national security law in Hong Kong to the rise of Asia Hate Crimes in the Puget Sound Region. Nelson, in his role a member of the Council’s Executive Committee and Government Affairs Committee has helped to raise the profile of the Council and increase its influence.
