March 15 Meeting Highlights
We were delighted to meet some new friends,  Suhkhy Bisla, General Manger of CIBC; Alvin Leung, Associate Vice-President of CIBC and Gary Hsu guest of James Kao. Alvin is interested to find out more about Rotary.
Our speaker was Bill Lau, husband of member Cindy Lau. Both Bill and Cindy immigrated from oversea, Bill graduated from the University of Waterloo and Cindy graduated from Simon Fraser University.
After a visit to the beautiful British Columbia, Bill decided to settle in Vancouver and open his own company CBA Electrical and Security System Company in 1989. Bill gave us a brief history of how alarm system has advanced since the 1990's. Now it is not just an alarm to keep the burglars away but a full security system that can even save lives.
