The 2019 National Civic Leadership Forum

As an Asian American Organization Leader, you are cordially invited to join the upcoming National Civic Leadership Forum (NCLF) in Washington DC on August 15-18, 2019.  This NCLF event is sponsored by Civic Leadership USA (CLUSA) and Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affair (APAPA) and supported by many AAPI organizations.

The long term goal of the NCLF is to build unity among a diverse group of AAPI to fight against racial bias and achieve equality for the AAPI community. The forum will provide a platform for our community to interact and build trust through collaboration. It is also an opportunity to show strength and unity and to interact and work with Congressional Members and the White House on issues pertaining to the AAPI community. The theme of this Forum is “Empowering Asian American & Pacific Islanders for 2020” – the year that the AAPI community will make a difference.

At this Forum, you will

  • Hear Keynotes by US Representatives: Ted Lieu, Judy Chu, Lloyd Doggert & Andy Kim; Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao; Fmr chief of Staff to Michelle Obama Tina Tchen, Community Leaders: C-100 President Frank H. Wu and others
  • Mingle with other AAPI leaders from around the country;
  • Gain insights in elected and appointed political or non-political leadership positions and learn the best practices;
