6 A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Sung Won Lee Dear KSEA members! At the end of the year 2004, I will have served the first half of my term as the 33 rd President of the KSEA. Before I began my term I had a list of the specific tasks I wanted to accomplish in order to strengthen the KSEA. This list included enhancement of annual events such as the US-Korea Conference (UKC), the Young Generation (YG) program and the National Math Competition, improvement of the financial health of the KSEA and scholarship program, a database upgrade, and building stronger relationships with other Korean-American professional organizations. I am pleased to report that we have made some progress. But much more remain to be done. The UKC2004 was successfully held last August in Research Triangle Park, NC. The UKC2004 was a big success with a large number of participants. Attendance in all forums and technical sessions was excellent. All symposium organizers reported that the quality of papers presented in their respective symposium were of very high quality. I would like to thank the many people who invested valuable time and energy in the UKC2004. The list includes symposium organizers, the local host committee chaired by Prof. Heakyung Lee, KSEA HQ staff and Executive Committee members. I am also grateful to KUSCO and other sponsors for their generous support and monetary contributions. The YG Technical and Leadership Conference (YGTLC) will be held January 3-6, 2005 in San Francisco. The YGTLC replaces the annual YG Leadership Forum, expanding the old one-day event to a four-day event, including technical presentations and involving a wider spectrum of participants. I thank Prof. David Hosin Lee, YG Committee Chair, and YG members who have been working diligently for the success of YGTLC The National Math Competition (NMC) has grown tremendously in magnitude and popularity among students and parents since it was initiated in It has become a major venue for KSEA outreach to the Korean-American community. I hope that some of the dormant chapters will be revitalized via the NMC before my term ends. Prof. Kang Won Lee, KSEA Vice President, has been tasked to coordinate the NMC2005 and the chapter revitalization plan. A scholarship was established in memory of Prof. Shoon Kyung Kim, KSEA founding President, and efforts are being made to secure funding for additional scholarships. To improve the database, members are being asked to update personal data. Some of you have already been contacted via phone. Updating can be done online by logging into the KSEA website ( Also, you may find other useful information on KSEA activities and news at the website. In case you don t know your user ID and the password, please contact Ms. Joyce Lee at the KSEA HQ. Initial steps are being taken to build stronger relationships with other Korean-American professional organizations. We hope that a closer linkage with these groups will encourage scientists and engineers who live and work far away from major population centers to get involved in KSEA activities. Finally, the financial situation of the KSEA has improved since my term began, and KSEA finances will be in stable condition on a short-term basis if we carefully control expenditures. However, we still need to work hard to develop the vision and the strategy to ensure the long-term financial health of the KSEA. Wishing you a happy holiday season, Sung Won Lee KSEA President 6 KSEA Letters, Vol. 33, No. 1 (December 2004)

7 UKC 2004 REPORT 2004 U.S. KOREA CONFERENCE ON SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP The UKC2004, one of the most important annual events of the KSEA, was held as follows: Time: August 12-14, 2004 Place: Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina The UKC2004 was a tremendous success. The number of people registered was 315. Attendance in all forums and technical sessions were excellent. The list of speakers included many distinguished individuals. Plenary session speakers were two members of Korean National Assembly (Dr. Chang Sun Hong and Dr. Sang Kee Suh) and two distinguished scholars (Prof. Shin-Yong Moon, SNU and Prof. Charles Lieber, Harvard University). Dr. Si-Joong Kim, KOFST President, delivered a special presentation on the present and future of science and technology in Korea. In addition to forums and technical symposiums, the UKC 2004 included the KSEA Awards ceremony, a music program and a special time in memory of late Dr. Hyung-Sup Choi.

8 WELCOME TO THE UKC 2004 Dear Friends, colleagues in science and engineering, distinguished guests, and ladies and gentlemen from Korea and the U.S., it is indeed my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the 2004 US-Korea Conference on Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship (UKC2004). The US-Korea Conference jointly organized by the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA) and the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST), with the help of Korea-US Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO), is one of the most important annual activities of the KSEA, along with the annual National Mathematics Competition (NMC). Accordingly, a great deal of financial and human resources had to be mobilized in preparation for this conference, and I am happy to report that the KSEA has been blessed with the help from many individuals, companies and organizations. I would like to express my deep appreciation to the industrial companies and organizations that have most generously provided the KSEA with the funds needed to support the UKC2004. The list of these companies and organizations is included in the UKC2004 Program book. I am grateful to many individuals who helped my fund raising campaigns. Also, I would like to note that the KUSCO has consistently provided substantial amount of funding for the UKC and other activities of the KSEA every year, reflecting the excellent relationship between the two organizations. I would like to thank and applaud the people who organized the symposiums and forums for the UKC2004. They had to work under the constraints of limited time and funds. Still, they produced excellent programs for the UKC2004. KSEA Executive Committee members and HQ staff performed superbly under tremendous pressure in preparation of the UKC2004. My special thanks go to the North Carolina Chapter. They had the vision and courage to propose to hold the UKC2004 on their own home turf and, once their proposal was approved, they worked very diligently to provide excellent logistical support for the success of the UKC2004. The UKC2004 is a manifestation of the volunteer spirit that holds the KSEA together as a viable organization. I am glad that the KSEA has many extraordinary individuals with good heart among its members. If you are not a KSEA member, I would like to invite you to join and get involved with KSEA activities. Thank you very much. Sung W. Lee President, KSEA 8 KSEA Letters, Vol. 33, No. 1 (December 2004)

9 WELCOME President Sung Won Lee, distinguished guests, members of the KSEA, ladies and gentlemen; it is my distinct pleasure to join President Lee in welcoming you to the UKC2004. Looking over the program, I am certain you will enjoy the conference and it will be enriched by your participation. I represent the Korea-US Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO), a not-for-profit corporation established in Virginia with a mission to promote scientific cooperation between Korea and the United States. From its inception, the KUSCO has enjoyed a collaborative relationship with the KSEA. This relationship has been nurtured by our common aspiration to advance not only the Korea-US scientific collaboration but to help expand scientific knowledge in general. Our cooperative relationship is stronger than ever you may take notice of the fact that two people having the same name, Sung Lee, represent our two organizations in this conference! We may ask what the most pressing issue is in science and engineering that is common to both Korea and the US. I submit it is the growing trend among young people to move away from the disciplines of science and engineering. Applications for admission to science, engineering and computer science have been in steady decline even in many top-rated universities both in Korea and the United States. No doubt, there are many reasons for this trend. But I must wonder whether or not this is a direct consequence of our educational system, which has been increasingly emphasizing career development instead of the reward of discovery. In an age when instance gratification is taken as virtue, a long and arduous career path in science and engineering is not a very welcome choice. I believe it essential this trend be reversed. The KSEA and the KUSCO are working together in a number of areas to promote science and engineering. The direct support of this conference by the KUSCO is one such example. The KUSCO provides funding support to scholarships, conferences, symposia and other scientific activities proposed by various organizations. Two members from the KSEA are on the KUSCO Board of Directors and they help guide the evaluation and selection of proposals for funding. In coming October, there will be a policy forum in Korea jointly sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Korea Science and Engineering Foundation. The purpose of the forum is to brainstorm effective means of invigorating scientific collaboration between Korea and the United States. Professor Sung Won Lee will represent the KSEA in the forum. Professor Lloyd Griffiths of George Mason University, another KUSCO Board member, and myself, will represent the KUSCO. It is my hope this type of collaborative effort between KSEA and KUSCO will increase with time towards providing more opportunities for science and engineering, especially among younger generations. I wish to congratulate Professor Sung Won Lee and his colleagues for preparing once again a very successful UKC. Please enjoy the conference. Sung M. Lee Chairman Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center KSEA Letters, Vol. 33, No. 1 (December 2004) 9

40 2005 NATIONAL MATHEMATICS COMPETITION The 2005 National Mathematics Competition (NMC2005) is scheduled to be held on April 2, The NMC has grown tremendously in magnitude and popularity among students and parents since it was initiated in For KSEA it has become a major venue for reaching out to the Korean- American community. Prof. Kang Won Lee, KSEA Vice President, will coordinate the NMC2005. YOUNG GENERATION TECHNICAL & LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE The future success of the Korea-U.S. cooperation in science and technology arena hinges upon active participation of the Young Generation Korean- American students in Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA). The Young Generation Technical and Leadership Conference (YGTLC) would enhance the current Young Generation Leadership Forum (YGLF) initiated in 1998 by primarily adding technical paper presentation sessions by YG students. The first goal of YGTLC is to provide Korean-American undergraduate/graduate students in America to have an opportunity to showcase their research. The second goal of YGTLC is to promote careers in science and engineering for Korean-American students through technical workshops and CEO/CTO/CIO dinner. The third goal of YGTLC is to sustain the nation-wide YG movement by providing leadership training and networking opportunities for leaders at the KSEA student chapters across America. The First YGTLC is slated to be held at Embassy Suites hotel near San Francisco Airport from January 3-6, The original idea of holding such a technical conference in lieu of the existing annual YGLF was conceived at the 2004 YGLF in Washington D.C. organized by KSEA and 2004 YGF (Young Generation Forum) in Korea organized by Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST). KSEA participates in the YGF by selecting the most qualified students from America to attend the YGF along with the representatives from other similar societies in the world. Up to fifty students are expected to participate at the YGTLC as presenters of the papers and/or leaders of the KSEA student chapters. Airfare, lodging, and meals for the three-day conference in San Francisco will be provided for all active participants. All accepted papers will be published in the YGTLC Proceedings. Select papers will be also published in the KSEA Letters. Three outstanding papers, one by an undergraduate student, one by a graduate student, and one in general area will be awarded special distinction. The YGTLC will start with the welcoming dinner at 6:00 p.m. on January 3 rd. The first day, January 4 th, will be devoted to leadership training and group workshops, similar to the existing YGLF followed by CEO/CTO/CIO dinner. The second day, January 5 th, will be devoted to paper presentations and posters followed by a banquet. The third day, January 6 th, will be devoted to group workshop presentations in a skit format followed by the award luncheon ending the program at 2:00 p.m. Detailed information can be obtained from the official website of YGTLC.

45 2004 KSEA Council Meeting Minutes Date: Sunday, August 15, 2004 Place: Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center Research Triangle Park, North Carolina Meeting called to order at 9:15 AM by Dr. Sung Won Lee, KSEA President. 1. Welcoming Announcement Dr. Sung Won Lee, President 1.1. Welcoming Remark -- President Lee welcomed the Councilors and other attendees. 1.2 Conduct of Meeting President Lee announced that that the conduct of the meeting would be delegated to Executive Director ( ED ). 2. Opening Announcement Dr. Hyokang Chang, ED 2.1 Quorum ED explained the quorum needed to conduct the Council meeting was 23 since there were 45 councilors. Local chapter presidents with at least 30 due-paying members were qualified as councilors. ED noted that 26 were in the attendance and declared the quorum met. 2.2 Disallowing of Proxies Due to legal issues with allowing proxies for the Council Meeting, ED explained that no proxies were allowed for this year s Council Meeting. The legal advice the KSEA got from its lawyer was that since the Council Meeting is equivalent to board of director s meeting, rather than corporate members meeting, each councilor assumes fiduciary duties that cannot be easily delegated. ED asked for after-the-fact approval of the decision by Executive Committee ( EC ) not to allow proxies. The Council approved EC s decision without any objections. ED then announced that each councilor can cast only one vote. 2.3 Review of Meeting Agenda The meeting agenda was presented to the Council as follows. 9:00 9:30am Opening remark President Sung Won Lee Logistics and review of agenda 9:30 10:30 Final Report of the 32 nd Administration 32 nd President Quiesup Kim 10:30 11:00 Auditor s Report Auditor Kang-Wook Lee 11:00 11:15 Break 11:15 12:15 Business Plan of the 33 rd Administration KSEA Status Report ED Hyokang Chang Business Plan ED Hyokang Chang Budget Proposal FD James Song UKC-2005 President Elect Kane Kim 12:15 1:30pm Lunch 1:30 2:30 Nomination and Selection of Candidates NC Chair Kyungsik Kang 2:30 4:00 Committee Reports 4:00 4:15 Local Chapter Presidents Report 4:15 5:30 Other Issues After reviewing it the Council approved the agenda without any objections. 3.

46 Administration, but that a formal report still needed to be prepared and submitted to the Department of Labor. The task of completing the project was thus transferred to the 33 rd Administration Amount of carry-forward Dr. Kim explained that the amount of carry-forward to 33 rd Administration was impacted by the payment of back taxes on Rockville property. Due to nonpayment of property taxes during , the additional expense incurred to 32 nd Administration for back taxes, interests and legal fees was $18, Dr. Kim claimed that for fair comparison this amount needed to be added to the actual carry-forward amount of $9, During the discussion it was pointed out that even when the additional expense incurred due to nonpayment of back taxes was added to the carryforward amount ($9, $18, = $27,960.91), it was still well below the carry-over amount of $48, the 32 nd Administration received from the previous one. Dr. Kim explained that, due to 2002 Presidential election in Korea, he had difficulties in raising funds in Korea Petition received Dr. Kim reported that he sent the Petition matter he received requesting for disciplinary action against one of the members to Award and Disciplinary Committee without disclosing its content to anyone else.

The 33 rd Administration Business Plan 5.1 KSEA Status Report ED ED reported that the financial health of the KSEA was very challenging and EC would do whatever necessary to cut down expenses. ED asked for understanding of members on certain restrictions and inconveniences caused by limited budget. 5.2 Business Plan - ED ED presented the 33 rd Administration business plan with emphasis on the following activities: - GEM-SET - Young Generation Development - Data Projects for Membership Directory - National Math Competition (NMC) Projects GEM-SET is a federally funded project. It was initiated during 32 nd Administration with expected completion date of September 30, Due to funding problems, however, GEM-SET project was interrupted. It was 33 rd Administration s objective to find funding sources for this project and complete it successfully. Young Generation Development is to induce undergraduate students to KSEA activities as junior members. KSEA supports Young Generation activities through Young Generation Committee (YGC). One of the major activities of YGC is to hold an annual conference. The 33 rd Administration plans to provide strong support to YG Conference through financial support and active participation. Currently the membership directory database is seriously outdated. One way to upgrade the database at this point is to contact each member individually and update the information. The 33 rd Administration plans to hire a part-time worker who would be dedicated to this task. KSEA Letters, Vol. 33, No. 1 (December 2004) 47

48 The NMC project has been very successful. It is the goal of the 33 rd Administration to expand further the scope of the NMC project. 5.3 Budget Proposal - Finance Director ( FD ) James Song Budget Plan FD presented the 33 rd Administration budget of approximately $456,000 that is about 12% higher than last year s. Given that the budget situation the 33 rd Administration inherited from the previous one was very challenging, the 33 rd Administration needed to make an extraordinary effort to implement its business proposal and stabilize the financial footing of KSEA. President Lee pledged that he would work very hard to bring in more funding (about $80,000 more than last year s) Budget Discussion The Councilors reviewed the budget in detail and made a number of suggestions. Based on the feedback from the Councilors, FD revised the proposed budget with following changes: - Budget for Corporate Membership Fee Return (Item 6) to be deleted since that is no longer necessary. - Budget for Young Generation Development (Item 13) to be increased from $10,000 to $20, Budget for Professional Societies Development (Item 17) to be allocated. $3,000 was allocated for this item. - Budget for Regional Conferences (Item 27) to be allocated. $5,000 was allocated for this item rd Term Budget Approval On the revised budget proposal Councilors voted and approved it.

Nomination and Selection of the Candidates for Officers and Councilors Nomination Committee Chair, Dr. Kyungsik Kang Dr. Kang presented and explained the nomination results and solicited more nominations from the floor. The Council also discussed the process of finding an auditor to fill in the vacant position. After some discussions the Council reached a consensus that the auditor candidate who would receive highest votes during candidate selection process would fill in the vacant position immediately. After the vote, however, it turned out Dr. Hosin (David) Lee who got the highest vote was currently holding a chair position of YGC. Since auditors are not allowed to share any other official positions of KSEA, the Council made a resolution that the person who got next highest votes should fill in the vacant position. As a result, Dr. Kwang Woong Won was elected to fill in the vacant auditor position effective immediately.

After Dr. Kim s report, President Lee reported that the Petition matter had not been formally transferred to the 33 rd Administration and that there were no formal documents registered in the KSEA file Discussions and Resolutions on Petition matter During discussions the majority of Councilors expressed the opinion that an Ad Hoc Committee should not outlive the Administration under which it was formed unless specified otherwise by the Council. At the end of discussions one of the Councilors presented a motion requiring that - Ad Hoc Committee be dissolved immediately. - All documents and records related to the Petition matter be transferred to President Lee. - EC proceed with this Petition matter from a clean slate.

53 Candidate for 35 th President Kang, Sung Kwon New Visions and Strategies for Greater KSEA Kang, Sung-Kwon Dear Members: My sincere thanks are expressed for your continued support for my candidacy. I have been a Member since 1972, serving various Chapters and HQ functions including NY-Metro-Chapter President, Chapter Councilor, HQ Election Comm, Scholarship Comm, Group Councilor, Vice-President (28 th ) and others. My active participation in KSEA has provided me valuable experience in leadership training and many respectable friendships. In appreciation of the benefits I ve received, I wish to serve for you and KSEA. For the past 30 years, KSEA has well accomplished the initial goals set by our founding members and contributed immensely to the advancement of science and technology in Korea. However, in the recent years, we ve suffered from several organizational problems, which resulted in a noticeable decline in membership, Chapter activities, HQ revenue, etc. None-the-less, owing to the concerted efforts of HQ and Chapter leaderships, a positive trend is emerging in the growth of membership and member participation. The successful operation of the National Math Competition for last three years has greatly enhanced the public image of KSEA and also promoted member participation in local Chapters. This trend must continue to rebuild KSEA in the new era of a fast changing world. KSEA must recruit more young generation members to ensure its longevity and prosperity. To accomplish this task, I respectfully submit the following new visions, strategies and action plans to revitalize KSEA immediately. New Visions for KSEA in the 21 st Century An organization of the Member, by the Member and for the Member. A premier professional organization serving Korean-American communities and contributing to mainstream American society. To make KSEA more professional and reputable, KSEA should be operated as a member-oriented organization. KSEA s survival and growth depend on the foundation solely built and focused on individual membership. To make KSEA more united and recognized, KSEA must contribute to mainstream American society and Korean-American communities. We must go beyond the status of a self-serving organization. To achieve these visions, we must maintain strong membership, empower Chapters, and strengthen Chapter activities. Strategies and Action Plans for Greater KSEA 1) Rebuild Memberships and Participation Enhance and differentiate membership benefits. Rejuvenate inactive members. Install student Chapters at Universities. Facilitate job referral services. Maintain effective and open communication channels. Empower each Member for its ownership. Increase Group Councilors roles and activities. Activate existing Committees. 2) Strengthen Chapter Activities and Services Set high priority on Chapter activities. Increase financial support to Chapters. Revitalize Chapters. Encourage regional conferences. Enhance National Math Competition. Promote National Science Olympiad. Increase fund-raising activities for community services. Recruit corporate memberships. Utilize KSEA Award system to recognize outstanding contributions to science, technology & society. 3) Collaborate with K-A Professional Societies Co-sponsor UKC and regional conferences with Korean-American professional societies. Sponsor topical conferences. Invite K-A society leaderships into KSEA organization. Provide financial support for collaborating societies. Maintain working relations with science and technology communities in Korea. Develop volunteer consulting program for retired members. The new visions proposed here can only be achieved through your active participation and continuous support. Please exercise your voting right in the upcoming general election. This will be your first step to impact the future of KSEA. If elected by your support, I will dedicate my passion to achieve the proposed visions by being innovative and diligently executing the strategies and action plans. Thank you and I ask for your support! KSEA Letters, Vol. 33, No. 1 (December 2004) 53

55 Candidate for 35 th President Kim, Hyunkil H. 2. FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCY Dear KSEA members: Kim, Hyunkil H. It is distinguished honor to be nominated as a candidate for KSEA President. In past 30+ years, I have personally experienced the development and the progress of KSEA as Auditor, Chapter President, and Committee members. I observed, during the time, the effectiveness and efficiency of KSEA operation, experienced leadership capacities, and learned lack of inter-relationship with other professional societies. KSEA has room to improve in its activity. It is imperative to promote the cohesive spirit, unity, harmony within infrastructure. All disciplines need to recognize the multi- and/or inter- disciplinary tasks and its unique value among professional societies. Effective dialogue and effective communication could be enhanced by the use of all available network system. I pledge the following three (3) goals for the successful presidency of the great KSEA. 1. MEMBERSHIP DRIVE The current status needs to improve in its maximum participation. At this time, it appears there are more non-members than the number of full pledged regular members. The membership drive campaign is crucial in sustaining the active life of KSEA. Within an open door policy, we will overcome various barriers of alumni, locality, age, teaching against research, and even disciplinary pride (if any). In fact, we must care for Korean-American scientific heritage and attracting 1.5, 2 nd, and 3 rd generation Korean members. It is the time to recognize the turning point. We need to increase young members who would be the promising future of this Association. It is imperative for KSEA to obtain financial stability and to operate the fiscal year based on sound annual budget. The situation should not be the shaky financial health in each year. We all believe that there are available financial sources and will take advantage of some 35 years long public creditability for implementation of long-term fiscal plan. It is about time to conduct successful fundraising toward both public and private agencies. The strategy can be implemented by a group of interested and experienced members, innovative approach, exercise challenge and commitment, and membership dedication. 3. IMPROVE CHAPTER/YOUNG GENERATION ACTIVITIES The HQ office must set on top priority to assist all necessary action on Chapter support. The Chapter growth and health is directly related the national operation and its membership benefit. The Chapter activity can be directly related to the local Young Generation (YG) and they can start the leadership role in their locality. To rejuvenate KSEA, we need to work together and bind our commitment with harmony. The HQ office can be resourceful on employment opportunity through its network system. YG should be organized their own steering committee, e.g., YG Chapter or University Chapter, to maximize full participation. Now is the time to show the cohesive power of our commitment. Let us promote the knowledge and skills of our individual professional careers. It is our dream to share as family of science and technology in global village. I am optimistic about our future, and will dedicate myself to accomplish the above proposed visions by diligent commitment. KSEA shall act as a key to open huge gate for all royal members. Thank you for your support in advance. KSEA Letters, Vol. 33, No. 1 (December 2004) 55

Her story has been published in a local Korean newspaper, Northwestern University newspaper, Observer and the Civil and Environmental Engineering Newsletter at Northwestern University: I was so honored that I was invited to the National Women s Leadership Summit at Washington, DC to share experiences and strategies that have helped women and girls acquire the skills, knowledge, resources and networks that are essential to succeeding in the 21 st century economy. There were about 300 women participated in this event and 200 women were selected to White House Reception Honoring Mentors and Partners at Old Executive Office Building. The participants for this event were all successful women such as presidents, CEOs, directors, and etc. Most of them were much older than me. At the first day of the event, we went to the reception hosted by the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea. Ms. Shinae Chun, Korean Ambassador, and his wife gave a wonderful speech in front of a lot of people. I was so proud of them as Korean American. Highlights of the program included welcoming remarks from the members of Women s Bureau and White House Reception and a panel discussion with successful and professional women. We had the discussion sessions in partnership, leadership, mentorship, and entrepreneurship. The purpose of the discussion was to help the participants start to thinking about what action they may want to take when they return to their communities. The National Women s Leadership Summit provided me with the opportunity to watch the American women at work. It gave meaning to all the processes I learned about in school. It provided the opportunity for women to distinguish themselves as tomorrow s leaders. Women not only gained knowledge and experience in the nation s capital, they left with a sense of accomplishment and an increased ability to face the challenges of the future.
