ACEL360 was extended a VIP invite to attend The Federal Asian Pacific American Council’s (FAPAC) 33rd Annual National Leadership Training Program (NLTP) from May 14-17, 2018 at the Sheraton Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia. The NLTP theme was “Unite Our Vision by Working Together.”
FAPAC has represented the interests of Asian American and Pacific Islanders since 1985, promoting equal opportunity, cultural diversity, civic participation, and the advancement of government employees through training, education, mentoring, and development.
“ACEL360 stands shoulder to shoulder with FAPAC in calling for Asian Pacific Americans to stand together, united in our vision for equal opportunity,” Sanjay Puri, CEO of ACEL360, said. “Small and medium sized businesses in our communities need events like this to expand their networks.”
“More than 300 Federal and District of Columbia government employees representing various federal agencies attended this event which provided ACEL360 with the opportunity to call for greater inclusion and access for the APA business community in the federal marketplace,” Puri continued. “ACEL360 directly related its concerns to decision makers, policymakers and influencers, and we are appreciative of this opportunity.”
Discussions with senior government officials focused on career development, leadership, strategic management, communications, diversity and inclusion. Puri thanked FAPAC President Olivia Adrian for her strong leadership on these issues. He also commended U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, who keynoted the event, for her lifelong commitment to the APA community.
