Meifa Chen was known for relentlessly talking up our club and bringing many friends, coworkers, and random strangers to our meetings. Many of those visitors became incredible contributors to our club in their own right. In one particular 6-month term, Meifa was single-handedly responsible for nearly all the members that joined. During his term as President, he pushed even harder to get us to 40 active members.
Today, when a member has an extraordinary impact on the membership growth during a term, we will award that member the Meifa Chen Membership Award.
