CAPAA has vacancy

The Washington State Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs (CAPAA) is currently accepting applications to fulfill the position of commissioner as part of its board. CAPAA serves to improve the well being of Asian Pacific Americans by ensuring their access to participation in the fields of government, business, education and other areas.

The commissioner helps examine and define issues pertaining to the rights and needs of Asian Pacific Americans, and makes recommendations to the Governor and state agencies with respect to desirable changes in program and law. They serve on a voluntary basis and have the responsibility to maintain communication with the community they represent as well as to the board. They keep the community and board informed and up-to-date on issues, legislative activity, and statutes affecting the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.

As part of their duties, commissioners are expected to attend CAPAA’s public board meetings that are held five times a year around the state. (end)
