Announcement: Of late, some of the ASHK emails to you might have ended up in your junk box or failed to reach you. Due to cyber security concerns, the ASHK website has undergone a switch of its server IP address, resulting in an authentication reboot of the ASHK email accounts ( To ensure timely delivery and receipt of communications, we strongly recommend you to request your IT consultant to whitelist the ASHK domain, email and IP addresses so that you do not miss out on our emails and communications.
