I agree with Nicky; as an African American, I think cross-collaboration on issues will strengthen both our “juice” and our influence!

what type of services would members receive from apita? what are the tangible benefits from joining?
sandra chen lau
01:08:43
would we develop a list of api candidates for ceo openings or senior management recruitment? just as an example
Rowena Tomaneng (she/her/siya)
01:08:53
Yes, for membership, there has to be some clear benefit
Dr. Gennean Bolen
01:11:49
You could also offer mini-symposiums as a means of professional development
Trisha Murakawa
01:12:34
yes please
Judy Chen Haggerty MtSAC CCD
01:12:43
I like your suggestion Dr. Bolen.
Dr. Gennean Bolen
01:13:51
Symposiums would/could be “free” to members?
Lori Bennett
01:14:44
Member institutions could also allow their students to attend a symposium?
Judy Chen Haggerty MtSAC CCD
01:14:54
I think it should be free as one of the membership benefits
Wendy Ho

Rowena Tomaneng (she/her/siya)
01:18:23
I think we need to be realistic about time commitments we can all make; for example I’m an ACCCA, LEAPAdvance, and MSIAspiring Leaders Mentor…and mentoring for Asylmar Women’s Leadership Institute…

Hi all, have to head to another meeting. Lovely to see everyone!
Cindi Reiss
01:25:17
I think a question we need to think about both short term and long term, is how/why AA groups when advcoating for something are always to small a group or too small a voice … great that we are aligning with other groups. However, when we do that the AAPI always becomes an afterthought as Rowena and Tamil both stated
Dr. Gennean Bolen
01:25:24
Great meeting; thank you for having me. All the best, GB
sandra chen lau
01:25:33
if possible, i would suggest a meeting with api legislative caucus- give many api legislators are on key committees that fund community colleges. we can let api leg caucus know what our apita priorities are and how they can be informed. i’m happy to work on this.
Lori Bennett
01:26:18

Zeke Hernandez

Latino Caucus has collaborated with NALEO … Natl Assn Of Latino Elected Officials …. to bring this group on-board with ACCT. Inroads could be made with other Asian groups.
