During this time, she co-chaired a very successful workshop in Beijing on "Second Workshop on Hadron Physics in China and Opportunities with 12 GeV JLab." She will return to Tsinghua this fall to continue her collaborations with Chinese physicists in hadronic physics. In September 2010, Prof. Haiyan Gao was informed by Dr. Kate Kirby, executive officer of APS, that she won the 2010 APS General Election for the position of General Councilor, with her term beginning January 1, 2011.  The Council is the main governing body of the American Physical Society, sets policy and has the ultimate responsibility for the actions of the Society.
