Congratulations, you've found your new home.

Peoria Chinese Association (PCA), established in 1965, is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious organization, formed by the first small group of Chinese professionals living in Peoria. Today, with more than 1000 members, PCA is one of the most active and fastest growing community associations in Peoria. PCA focuses its goal on providing members with services that enrich every aspect of our lives in our new hometown. PCA activities are also aimed to promote the communication among all Chinese, as well as to promote Chinese culture to other local communities.

All Chinese in Peoria are welcome to join our group. (Membership can also be extended to non-Chinese who are interested in Chinese culture.) Currently, No membership fee is required. PCA obtains its funding from local enterprises, local stores and individual donations.

The president of PCA is elected by the committee members each year. The president is responsible for constructing a new committee. The committee is dedicated to serve PCA members and to fulfill all the mission of PCA. Over the past years, PCA organized many fun activities including the DuanWu Party, Mid Autumn party, the Chinese New Year and World Fest, which were widely enjoyed by the whole Chinese community.  

PCA brings together a diverse group of professionals consisting not only engineers but also people from all different backgrounds. Our goal has long been, and will continue to be providing a common ground for members to connect, share resources and opportunities in a highly collaborative atmosphere.  It is a home for members to share ideas and transform innovative ideas into reality. Members can learn from each other by participating parties, workshops and gatherings and improve ourselves in communications, leadership, management, and relationships. We sincerely hope PCA will help you to achieve your goals, both personally and professionally.
