ASA Committee 2015


The Australian Shanghai Association (ASA) has been an active part of the community in Shanghai for over 17 years. Previously known as the Australian Women's Social Group (AWSG), this community has long-standing links with a number of charitable organisations in and around Shanghai and continues to provide 'in kind' and financial support to these very worthy causes.

ASA members socialise on a regular basis. Some of our events include; monthly Coffee Mornings and LunchesBook Club, Knitting Group, art tours, Friday Night Drop-in drinks, Cooking Club, Mahjong Club excursions and much more.  

The ASA is renowned for its annual event, the Shanghai Melbourne Cup where

considerable funds are raised for our Charity Partners. The Shanghai Melbourne Cup Gala Luncheon is one of THE biggest and most glamorous daytime events on the Shanghai social calendar and is held every year on the first Tuesday in November.

Our members are active in contributing their time and skills to support our sponsored charities through programs such as teaching English, volunteering their time to work in children's hospitals, refuge centres, clothing recycle centres, knitting blankets and clothing etc. 

Finally, the ASA recognises the importance of providing a base for expats to network, make new friends and to get the most out of your time in Shanghai.
