Volunteer with Us

SEA is run entirely by volunteers, and we are always looking for new people to help. Any members who are interested in volunteering can contact

SEA is comprised of the following committees:

Day Trips: they typically plan two trips per month in and around Shanghai.

Hospitality: they are responsible for coordinating monthly coffee mornings and working with the vendors who display at some of these events.

Luncheons: they typically plan one lunch per month at great restaurants around Shanghai, in addition to other special events such as the holiday party, end-of-year party, and welcome back event.

Membership: they are responsible for signing up new members, and handling renewals.

Welcome Chat (Formerly Newcomers): they plan a reception each month to help welcome new members and people who are new to Shanghai.

Small Groups: they coordinate a variety of groups, such as weekly mahjong and biking trips around the city.

Special Events: they plan 20-30 events per month around Shanghai, such as cooking classes, crafting classes, and visits to museums.
