The Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) Greater Seattle Chapter has announced the election of the following board members for 2014: Ron Chew and Rebecca Chan (co-presidents), Connie So (vice president), Jael Yamamoto and Kevin Chao (secretaries), Chi Saeteurn (treasurer), and Bruce Huang, Doug Chin, Judy Lam Maxwell, Frank Irigon, Willon Lew, and Jacqueline Wu.

OCA was founded in 1973 as a nonprofit national civil rights organization seeking to unite Chinese Americans into one representative voice. It has since transformed into a national organization dedicated to advancing the social, political, and economic wellbeing of Asian Pacific Americans in the United States.

OCA Greater Seattle will hold its annual Golden Circle Awards dinner on Feb. 8 at 5 p.m. at the Joy Palace Restaurant. This year’s Golden Circle Awards, recognizing outstanding contributions to the API community, will be presented to Bettie Luke, Joyce Pisnanont, the Seattle Chinatown-International District Preservation and Development Authority, and the International District Emergency Center (Donnie Chin).
