The Committee of 100 (founded in 1990) "is a national non partisan organization composed of American citizens of Chinese descent. Each member has achieved positions of leadership in the United States in a broad range of professions. With these diverse backgrounds, members collectively pool their strengths and experience to address important issues concerning the Chinese-American community, as well as issues affecting U.S.-China relations." [1]

"C-100 was founded in early 1990. By the end of 1990, a core group of I. M. Pei, Yo-Yo Ma, Shirley Young, Oscar Tang, Henry Tang, and Chien-Shiung Wu had recruited distinguished Chinese Americans from the arts, business, academia, public service, and the sciences to serve on C-100." [2]

"C-100 has 149 members, they are based all over the U.S. and some are in Asia. Its size will remain small since important decisions are made by consensus." [3]
