Federal Asian Pacific American Council 18th Annual Conference

The Federal Asian Pacific American Council (FAPAC) will hold its 18th Annual National Training Conference in Arlington, Virginia during the week of May 12-16, 2003.

The conference theme for this year is: "Salute to Liberty."

FAPAC is an inter-agency organization of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) employed by the Federal and District of Columbia (DC) governments.

The organization represents over 200,000 APA employees, civilian and military, in all major Federal agencies and the DC government.

A nationally recognized organization since 1985, FAPAC pursues APA interests in the Federal and DC governments, promotes cultural diversity, and provides a bridge between APA employees and Federal management.

The 2003 FAPAC Conference will include the following events: pre-conference forums, a Congressional seminar, a Pacific Islander Program, a national leadership training conference, and an exhibition by various Federal agencies.

The conference features plenary sessions and workshops in the following areas: diversity, leadership development, civil rights, Pacific Islanders issues, EEO, manager/supervisor issues, and other related issues and concerns for APAs.

The National Leadership Training Conference focus is cultural diversity and leadership development.

The Bush Administration recognizes that America is stronger because of its rich diversity and looks for ways to encourage and support that strength.

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management supports FAPAC's efforts and encourages agency participation at this conference.
