The Ball provides a valuable opportunity for rising leaders and young professionals to interact with inspiring public sector leaders. The 2015 APA Heritage Ball theme “Redefining Asian Pacific America” celebrates the legacy and growth of APA leadership in public service. Emcees Rebecca Lee and Jason Tengco from the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders will lead the program. Lee has been involved with CAPAL since 2010 as a scholar, then as a board chair and now as an Advisory Council member. Tengco is actively involved with the APA community and has organized several youth leadership programs throughout his career.

“The CAPAL Asian Pacific American Heritage Ball is an opportunity for the APA community to come together and celebrate public service leaders and APA Heritage Month,” said Dan Lam, Chair of CAPAL. “Thanks to the generous support of sponsors like Comcast NBCUniversal, Central Intelligence Agency, National Association of Broadcasters, and Prudential, CAPAL continues to provide educational programs and support for future APA leaders interested in public service.”
