APEX 2006 was an exciting year as the organization took a new direction with Jason Scott Park as President! In 2006, APEX focused on cultivating leadership within 3 specific target groups: Adolescent/Youth, College/Graduate Students, and Young Professionals.
The 13th APEX Annual Awards Gala with Dinner & Silent Auction is an annual celebration in which APEX honors and raises the visibility of prominent Asian Pacific Americans in the spheres of professional leadership, community service, the arts, and entertainment: all integral parts of APEX’s 13 years of commitment to the empowered individual and the community at large.
We present this celebration to showcase our achievements not only to our members and peers, but also to our more corporate sponsors and community leaders. The event is the culmination of our accomplishments to those we work closest with, and to recognize exemplary individuals who have significantly supported the Asian American community.
It is extremely important as a community to come together and create platform and opportunities to raise more leaders in the private and public sector. Come and find out who9s who and who9s doing what in the Asian Pacific American community here in Southern California as we fundraise for our organization!
