May 1, 2014

Welcome the arrival of the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month which witnessed the continual rise of the AAPI community, both in number as well as in visibility. The theme this year is “Diversity Leadership + Expanding Opportunity: An Imperative for America” speaks well to the promise and the effort we must make to get there. The work ethics of AAPI is well known and demonstrated by the first generation of immigrants that arrived at the American shores more than two centuries ago. The process continues today with the new generation of new immigrants as well as those who are born here. Let us not forget that AAPI spoke many languages and any generalization often misses the mark.

For those of you heading to Charlotte I look forward meeting each of you. The planning team has tried very hard to do the outreach to student and veterans to attract them to join the federal workforce.  In this effort we had a great partnership with the Carolinas Asian-American Chamber of Commerce. We look forward to a productive training event, with the good wishes and encouragement from Governor Pat McCrory and Mayor Daniel Clodfelter.  Due to schedule conflict OPM Director Katherine Archuleta would not be able to join us but she has taped a special video message to show her support and appreciation of the work that FAPAC does.

The Business Advisory Partnership (BAP) reached its milestone of ten Founding Members and held its first meeting with the FAPAC Board of Directors. The group is continuing the process of setting up the by-laws and programs as well as financial oversight to provide advice and support to FAPAC in its mission to promote equal opportunity and diversity in the federal and District of Columbia governments.

FAPAC will join with Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez on May 9 for the induction of The Chinese Railroad Workers into the Labor Hall of Fame. This has a special meaning for me because these early immigrants are from Taisan, where I was born. I will also be speaking at the Heritage Month observance at the U. S. Marine Corps and the Government Printing Office.

FAPAC will be holding its annual picnic on July 12 at the Wheaton Regional Park. Please bring your family, friends and any favorite dish to mingle and share. Our Membership Committee also will be on hand to sign up new members who wish to join. In 2015 FAPAC will be celebrating 30 years of promoting equal opportunity and cultural diversity in the federal and District of Columbia governments.

If you are not a member or have not renewed your membership, you can do so on-line at www.fapac.org .  You can also change your level of membership to Lifetime and join the more than 100 others.
