THEME 
 The 2022 Convention theme is "Limitless Leadership," thus we are looking for contributors who have truly lived this theme of breaking free of societal- or self-imposed restrictions to take risks and assert themselves as change agents, innovators, and game changers.
CRITERIA
Our speakers may be of any race, ethnicity, and organization, but we will give preference to speakers who can speak authentically to the Asian North American or Pacific Islander experience or who represent one of our sponsors and partners. Nominees should possess deep knowledge of and passion for their subject matter.
PRESENTATION REQUIREMENT
Nominees must be available to speak for about 1 hour. They should prepare an introduction, a presentation with optional interactive exercises, and for a Q&A. Preference will be given to nominees that offer interactive exercises.
EXPECTATION
Be engaging and inspiring speakers.
The Convention will be in Washington, D.C. in person, so your nominee needs to be able to travel if they are not local to the area.

Below are two speakers who will be at the convention!
           
David Liu will be an Aug. 12 keynote on "How I Conquered the Corporate Game as an Asian American.

PAST EVENTS 
 

It was so great seeing many of you this past month! Here is a quick recap of our events!

We kicked off our Women's History Month celebrations with a virtual event on Women in Leadership with Roy Hartsfield, who shared her powerful story and experiences in leadership. We held a bar crawl celebrating the successes of two Asian female business owners in D.C. Thank you to Candice Wise-Norris of Death Punch, Shibuya Eatery, and Shabu Plus, and Gracie of Town Tavern for their inspirational words and sharing with us what it means to be a strong leader. Lastly, we visited the National Museum of American History's Girlhood (It's complicated) exhibition, explored the #IfThenSheCan exhibit (got to meet Dr. Arylne Simon!), and walked around the Tidal Basin to see the cherry blossoms.

Thank you to all who attended the first event of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion certificate workshops on Deciphering Bias. We had very engaging and insightful discussions as we explored the different types of biases that exist. 

We also had the opportunity to partner with NaFFAA on a letter writing campaign party to name the next U.S. Navy ship after a Filipino sailor named Telesforo Trinidad, who won the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1915. We had 25+ people send letters to their senators in support of the campaign!

Lastly, we were proud to help sponsor the Bataan Memorial Death March in the DMV area, honoring the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health, and, in many cases, their very lives. The community came out in strong force and was joined by Secretary of the Air Force Gina Ortiz Jones!
