The reform and "open gate" policy that the Chinese government implemented in the 1970's caused a steady increase in the numbers of mainland Chinese citizens emigrating to the Kansas City area to study, work and live. By 1993 that number had become significant. At that time there were several Chinese organizations already in existence in the Kansas City area. However, with the increasing number of Chinese immigrants settling in, a need has arisen for the creation of an organization to represent their common interests.

In June of 1993, Dr. Lu Wenhe invited several friends to his home to discuss the matter. They decided to form The Kansas City Chinese Network Association (KCCNA), a non-profit, apolitical, non-religious organization whose purpose was to promote socialization, improve benefits, develop common interests, and to satisfy the needs of the area's Chinese citizens. Mr. Tao Haisu was named the main organizer, and eleven more volunteered for liaison positions.

In the two years that have passed since the founding of the association, the KCCNA has developed a variety of diverse programs. In addition to the publication of an exclusive phone directory, the KCCNA has also sponsored Chinese movie rental services, monthly movie viewings, monthly ballroom dances, singles clubs, a basketball club, lectures, picnics, Karaoke competitions, and Spring Festival celebrations. This was all accomplished thanks to the hard work of the many volunteers of the KCCNA, who donated their personal time, energy and skills.

In 1995, it was decided to make the network into an official organization. Regulations were drafted, and the KCCNA was registered with the state of Kansas as a non-profit Chinese organization. Mr. Tao Haisu was elected the first president of the organization at the 1996 Spring Festival celebration.

In 2009, to better serve Chinese-America community in Kansas City Metro Area and beyond and remain focused on serving our member's needs, KCCA has gone through some necessary organization change and registered on 4/1/09 with state of Kansas with a unique business ID. The new board of directors has been established and new president elected on the first board of directors meeting on 10/12/09. Daniel Pengfeng Xue has been elected to lead the changes. After the bylaw established, a democratic voting system will be setup and all the board will be nominated by the nomination committee and be elected by KCCA’s members.

Updated contact information for KCCA is kccaboardofdirectors@gmail.com for communication with our board and kccabod@googlegroups.com for communication with Google Group that KCCA maintains. The Google Group name is “KCCA KS”.

Thank you and looking forward to your continued support for KCCA. Together, we will make Kansas City a better place for Chinese and those who appreciate Chinese heritage.
