       China Pragmatics Association (CPrA), an academic body formerly affiliated to Chinese Society of Rhetoric (CSR) and now to Chinese Society of Logic (CSL), was founded in December 2003, with its secretariat based at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS). While it is under the guidance and supervision of CSL, CPrA enjoys adequate operational independence.

CPrA is home to its over 600 members, who are learners and professionals keen on pragmatics. It aims at popularizing pragmatics in China, promoting the disciplinary construction of pragmatics¬ and bridging domestic and international pragmatics research, in an effort to make substantial contributions to the field in China and beyond. CPrA is dedicated to providing excellent service, enhancing normalization and promoting internationalization. On its agenda,CPrA sets such tasks and responsibilities as follows:

1) to carry out both theoretical and applied research on pragmatics as a means to achieve its ultimate goal;

2) to promote the academic exchanges between Chinese and international pragmatics scholars and researchers as a way to advance pragmatics studies;

3) to host the annual national conference on pragmatics every other year as a platform to bring latest pragmatics issues into discussion;

4) to set up symposiums or seminars on pragmatics at times as part of its talent development plan;

5) to accredit outstanding pragmatics books or papers from related research groups or researchers;

6) to assign and certify memberships such as the honorary president, honorary members, consultants, standing committee members, committee members, etc.;

7) to compile and publish the CPrA journal, pragmatics books and other products.

There are mainly three types of CPrA membership: individual, group and honorary. After applying to the CPrA committee for membership in a written statement, applicants who endorse the CPrA regulations while showing interest in pragmatics studies and taking regular part in CPrA events will receive individual membership with the approval of the CPrA committee. Currently, the individual membership is either a certified one with a CPrA membership card or a notified one without a card. Group memberships are granted to any university or research body who boasts of more than ten individual members, and has applied to and got the approval of the CPrA committee. In this case, the group members are entitled to host local academic or teaching events in the name of CPrA. Honorary memberships are approved and granted by the CPrA standing committee, to recommended applicants who well recognize the CPrA regulations and have made remarkable contributions in the field of pragmatics.

The CPrA committee stands as an authoritative body, and the committee members, elected by the members’ congress, speak for the CPrA members. Committee members enjoy a four-year tenure and are eligible to be re-elected consecutively. To qualify as a CPrA committee member, one shall be an associate/full professor, or have a doctoral degree and has published papers or research works on pragmatics in renowned journals or periodicals. The standing committee members, the president and the vice presidents, shall be full professors/researchers. During the intervals between committee sessions, the standing committee, formed at the plenary session of the CPrA committee through election, will assume its duty. The standing committee is responsible for naming through election a president and several vice presidents, and setting up a secretariat thereunder to cope with the routine work. The secretary-general and the deputy-secretary-general shall be first nominated by the president and then approved and appointed by the standing committee. The CPrA committee is encouraged to have noted public figures, top scholars and leaders as special members or consultants to attain its goals of further development.
