OCA National Convention "A Call To Action"
On behalf of OCA, is it is our honor to invite you to join us for the 2009 OCA Annual National Convention in San Francisco, California, from August 6-9, 2009.
Registration is online at www.ocanational.org! Be sure to book your hotel by July 2.
This year’s convention theme, “A Call to Action: Empowering Asian Pacific American Voices,” will focus not only on strengthening our diverse community’s voice, but also solidifying our efforts to be more inclusive so that each APA group within our community is empowered to raise its own voice as well. This theme also reaffirms OCA’s commitment to advocate for social justice, equal opportunity and fair treatment.
This is the third time an OCA convention has been held in San Francisco, where APAs are the fastest growing population and comprise more than 30 percent of the greater Bay Area’s total population. We are anticipating over 1,000 attendees from the local area and across the country at our Gala Awards and other exciting events.
Our Pioneer and Outstanding Citizens Award recipients will be: YouTube co-founder Steve Chen, Fashion Designer Anna Sui, Congressman Mike Honda, Groundbreaking Historians Phil Choy and Him Mark Lai (Posthumous).
This year’s highlights include:
- Career Fair & Community Health Fair
- Reception at City Hall
Angel Island Picnic and Tour
- Programs for APA youth & college students
- Corporate Employee sessions
OCA Gala Awards Banquet
Early Bird Registration ends in ONE WEEK June 30, so DON’T DELAY!
